Raise the Polytunnel
Many thanks to everyone for the huge turnout, the brilliant enthusiasm and the teamwork in raising the polytunnel, replanting the allotment and moving all that woodchip.
We will finish the job by putting up the plastic cover on the next available warm Saturday or Sunday. If you were involved on the 2nd and would like to come along please let us know by email and we will contact you at short notice, on a Friday, to see if you are available. We don't need huge numbers, so don't worry if you can't make a particular day.
