It’s been long overdue, but if you’ve visited the allotments in the last week, you may have noticed some changes.

The drainage work has now been completed, and I hope this will improve the drainage of the site in the future.

Many Thanks to

  • Matthew Atkinson of Atkinson Landscapes.
  • Richard Barnes.
  • Pat Bradley.
  • The Allotment volunteers that regularly pumped out the water using the allotment water pump.

We applied for a grant from the local Parish Council (Yapham cum Meltonby), to provide a new lawn mower for the association, to replace the associations aging and broken lawn mowers that were cast off, and originally donated to us.

We were successful in obtaining the grant money, and this has helped us purchase a new Honda Izy HRG 416 SK Lawnmower, which is self propelled, which will help members cut the grass.

My Thanks to the Councillors at Yapham cum Meltonby Parish Council.

The GPAA Team!

The GPAA Team!

A Big Thanks to the following, who gave up their time on 1 December 2012 :-

  • Suzanne (Chairperson)
  • Stephen (Treasurer)
  • Anna
  • Carl
  • Kate
  • Chris
  • Stephen
  • Elaine

I think I can say, a good time was had by all!

We started completing the assembly of the frame at approx 9.00am, and then started to dig the trenches, (helped by Mr Mantis!) and dig the holes for the polytunnel legs, once the polytunnel frame was moved into position, anti hot spot tape was applied to the metal hoops to protect the polythenne cover, the polythenne cover was unwrapped, and pulled over the frame, and then buried in the trenches. We still need to complete the doors at either end, but the majority of work has been completed.

It was completed by approximately 13:00.

Here is a gallery of photos, I took….
