New Year Work Out on Scarcroft Allotments

Volunteers wanted
It's time to move the chippings on Scarcroft.

Sunday 16th January 10.30 a.m. onwards

If you can, please bring a barrow, a shovel and gloves, but most importantly bring yourselves.

York City Council was kind enough to give us a huge pile of chippings when they trimmed the trees on Scarcroft Road recently.  These chippings are currently spread quite widely across the car park.  We need to move them soon so that the grass in the car park does not die and the whole area does not become a mud bath.  To this end, we are looking for volunteers to help us move the chippings, we are intending to distribute them around the Scarcroft site to improve the paths.  Please let us know if you think any particular paths need attention, our first thoughts are to work on the central path and the one along the back of Wentworth Road. 

So if you are looking for a January work out in the fresh air please join us.  There is no need for it to be back breaking, everyone is welcome to do as much or as little as you want.  Many hands will make light work!  Meet at the allotment shop. Tea and biscuits will be served in the shop from 12 onwards.

If you want chippings for your plot remember it's 50p a barrow load, pay in the shop.
