There's an exciting Local History Event being held at Clements Hall, Nunthorpe Road. This is a two day programme of free events Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd November from 11.30am onwards. On Friday at 3pm is a talk that may be of particular interest to gardeners and allotment holders, The History of Allotments in the Scarcroft area by Catherine Heinmeyer. Please see this link for more information http://clementshall.org.uk/events-2/public-events/local-history-project/
Look out for the Scarcroft and District Allotment Association 2013 Calendar On sale in the Allotment Shop, Pextons and Frankie & Johnny's Cook Shop on Bishopthorpe Road from first week in November. Priced £5 Yes! Only £5 how's that for solving Christmas gift ideas. Limited number printed so don't delay. Once again this community project would not be possible without the photographic contributions from Association members and the support from our local businesses.
Unfortunately there have been a number of incidents of vandalism on Scarcroft Allotments recently.
As a reminder to plot holders if you find any damage done on your plot, please call 101, the police non-emergency number, and report it. Because few of the incidents that have happened have been reported, the site has been taken off the list of places for routine patrolling by the neighbourhood police team. If we report every incident, we’ll get routine police patrols again and that police presence does act as a deterrent!
