Several months ago there was some interest in the possibility of getting work done on the site by offenders working through the Community Payback Scheme (CPS). Some plot holders have reservations, and so it was decided at the AAG AGM that someone from the CPS would come and give an informal talk.
Tony Pool and Kate Botha, from the Redhill office of the CPS gave an informal talk and answered our questions about the scheme and how it works. Notes of the meeting can be seen at Talk on the Community Payback Scheme 16th July 2011
Having obtained detailed information about how the CPS works, and how it might be used on our allotment site, we are interested to know what plot holders think.
If you are in favour of us giving the scheme a trial, please let us know. Equally let us know if you are opposed to it being used on the site, even for a trial period. We will have a special daytime AAG meeting at Diggers Den on a weekend date in the autumn (date to be arranged), where the matter will be up for public discussion and a decision may be made.
Please let us know your views, to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Epsom & Ewell Allotment Forum is an informal body (not an official Council committee) that consists of representatives from all the allotment sites in the borough. They meet several times each year, with the Chairmanship rotating between the various allotment sites.
The Forum attempts to liaise with the Council on allotment matters, and respresent the interests of the various allotment sites. It endeavours to raise the profile of allotments in the borough, and help to ensure that the various allotment committees work in co-operation with the Council.
The last Allotment Forum meeting was on Monday 20th June, and the minutes of that meeting are at Forum_Meeting_Minutes_20.6.2011
The most recent meeting of AAG was on 1st June.
The agenda is at AAG Agenda 1.6.2011

Changes to waste bays:
There are soon to be slight changes to the three communal compost/waste areas on the allotment site. After much discussion, it has been agreed they will have two bays, for compostable green waste (soft weeds) and non-compostable plant waste. They will be clearly labelled, for ease of use. A small work party will be arranged shortly to put up the bays and signs at the top (Bridle Road) waste site.
We ask the co-operation of all plot holders in not dumping any rubbish on any of the bays (plastic, glass, metal, carpet, planks of wooe etc). Please could you take this home with you, for disposal in your home rubbish or recycling collection.
We will see how the new two-bay system works, over the coming weeks, and whether changes or modifications are needed.
