Berkeley Homes have kindly donated and delivered to the Site a number of pallets for the use of plotholders on their plots. Berkeley Homes are currently developing Wimbledon Hill Park on Copse Hill.
Wooden pallets have a number of potential uses on a plot, including building a compost bin - a vital feature to reduce valuable green waste leaving the Site. See the links page for links to advice about how to use pallets to build a bin. Berkeley Homes themselves are using other pallets to create benches for builders working at Wimbledon Hill Park.

CPAGA understands from the Allotment Administrator that the water supply to the Site and, consequently the John Gray Centre and the toilets, will not be restored until the end of March or the beginning of April, weather permitting.
CPAGA's Management Committee knows that people visiting the Site value the availability of flushing toilets. If plotholders are concerned about the consequences of idverde's implementation of Merton's policy, a point of contact is the Merton Cabinet Member for Community and Culture, currently Councillor Nick Draper (St Helier ward).
