As a result of the funding we received last year for making improvements to the site from Surrey County Council, with the help of Denise Turner-Stewart, our local Surrey County Councillor, we have put in additional watering facilities and have cleared a number of overgrown plots.
Several new people have joined us and we hope that more will follow. See the gallery which has photos of plots that have recently been rotovated and there are still a few available to rent. Remember you don't have to take on a full size plot, we will divide them up to suit your requirements.
We are also in line for additional funding from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative, having been shortlisted to receive a grant - money which has been raised from the 5p carrier bag levy.
Voting for the three projects, including ours, takes place in Tesco stores throughout May and June and shoppers are being invited to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.
Sadly we didn't manage to get the top award from Tesco but we did receive £1000 which will help finance the installation of a compostable toilet.
The toilet has been installed and is a welcome addition to the site facilities.
The foot crossing over the railway line which provided access to the site from the north has been closed by Network Rail.
Further funding from Surrey County Council has allowed us to put in additional storage facilities for equipment.
Rotovator purchased for use by members.
Battery powered mower purchased to replace difficult to maintain petrol driven machines.
