Bonfires

You may not be aware of the latest Council advice about bonfires, they say that "During this period of coronavirus spread the local authority asks that you do not have any bonfires at all".

There is more information on the RBK website:

Ticks and Lyme disease

Please be aware that last year several allotment holders reported being bitten by ticks.  As we are so close to Richmond Park, animals such as badgers and foxes enter the site, carrying the ticks which can then be rubbed off onto plants and grass and then onto us.  For further advice please see:

  • DO NOT clean tools/produce/hands in the tanks.
    (If necessary, wash off mud on your plot but not on pathways)
  • Clean base of watering cans before filling.
  • Remove floating rubbish and water weeds.
  • Report leaks and faults to the Site Supervisors.
  • Keep soil and stones away from the tank sides.
  • Remove sludge and stones from the bottom of tanks.
