Bonfires We have had complaints from nearby residents about smoke and pollution from bonfires. Allotment Rule 6ii clearly states that the allotment holder shall not cause annoyance to any other allotment occupier or local resident. Failure to comply with this rule could mean no more bonfires at the allotments. It is a great pity that a few thoughtless plot holders choose to ignore this rule and also leave bonfires unattended. When you leave your plot any bonfire should be extinguished.
Fly Tipping We have recently had some fly tipping occur on the allotments which the society has had to pay to have removed. Could all members please remember to close the gate if they are the last person to leave the plots. This may help deter future incidents of fly tipping. If fly tipping becomes a regular occurrence rents will have to be raised to cover the cost of removal of the offending rubbish.
RTC Allotments AGM The AGM will be held on Wednesday 2nd May 2018 at Romsey Town Hall at 7.30pm in the Council Chamber. All tenants are invited to attend.o can assist in any way with the supply of materials and/or assistance with the repairs? If so, please contact a committee member.
Allotment vandalism A number of allotment sheds have been vandalised and turned over and other items such as fruit cages and stakes have been broken on the allotments. The police are aware of this and spent some time at the plots with the Chairman looking for any clues as to the culprits. If you have had anything stolen from your plot could you please inform the committee or the Romsey police.
