Keep off the Grass

The latest work on the allotment roads is finished. In order to level out the big dip in the ground between the compost toilets and the picnic tables (and to keep the price down), much of the scooped-off soil from the work has been put there.

Please do not park your car there, until further notice. The soil will take several months to settle and become firm enough for cars. Moreover, it has been sown with grass seed.

If you park on the allotments, please make sure that a piece of paper with your plot number on it is clearly visible through your windscreen.
