The Centre and Shop are still closed until further notice, but, subject to the availability of suitable volunteers, the Garage may be open from time to time for sales of compost etc during Shop hours. If this is possible, it may be arranged at short notice.
The Committee takes note of the Government's changing advice and developments in the law in England. That is not the only consideration. The law requires that things can be done safely, the Committee is concerned for the safety of all plotholders, and CPAGA's activities depend on the availability of volunteers who are willing and able to tak...

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 creat...
If you see someone block the bays, tell them "Please, stop!" Volunteers arrange free manure for the benefit of all plotholders. If the manure bay is blocked, deliveries cannot be made and the stables go elsewhere. All users of free manure suffer.
Last week, whether as a result of fly tipping or good intentions not thought through, large amounts of shredded tree waste were dumped in front of CPAGA's garage door and the manure bay.
