Berkeley Homes have, again, 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.

The delivery of about 16 palettes is to undeveloped Plot 111 beside the Cottenham Park Lane gate.

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 have used other pallets to create benches for builders working at Wimbledon Hill Park.

Many thanks to Theresa Dale, Office Manager and CSS Co-ordinator for Berkeley Homes, and her colleagues for this further generous gift.

Everyone is invited to the CPAGA

idverde, on behalf of Merton Council, has issued invoices for allotment fees and charges for the year ended 30 September 2020 (2019/20). They state that payment must be made by 30 November 2019. It has also given notice of rent rates (only) that will apply for 2020/21.

The invoices set out possible payment methods: bank transfer, by card by phone and by cheque. The Allotment Adminstrator has requested that plotholders pay by bank transfer if they can. Payment by card by phone is no longer accepted as a payment method.

The relevant bank account is set out in the invoices and plotholders should quote the invoice number as a reference for the transfer to ensure correct allocation of the payment.

Please note: the relevant bank account for 2019/20 is different to that for years before 2018/19.

The notice of rent rates for 2020/21 is reproduced below:
