Working party

We are going to hold our first (and last!) working party of the year on Saturday December 4th to give our communal areas a good clear-out and trim before winter sets in in earnest.

And as Christmas is coming we’ll add a festive note to the activities – do wear your Christmas jumpers and hats to keep you warm.

Meet at the Trading Hut at 1.00pm, bring gloves, secateurs and other useful hand tools with you.

Refreshments will be provided for workers – we may even run to some mulled wine –

For the benefit of new members, we have traditionally managed the upkeep of the communal areas on-site mainly by holding around 10 working parties a year, although Covid has meant that we haven’t held formally arranged working parties during the pandemic. There’s always a good convivial atmosphere, usually a couple of hours work followed by drinks and a snack for our workers and the satisfaction that the site has been restored to good order. We won’t ask you to tackle anything you can’t manage and there will be plenty of people around to help.

As an incentive, working party attendance will earn you a credit, two of which will give you a small reduction on your annual plot rent come renewal time in October.
