The water supply is running, but a number of the troughs are quite clogged with earth and debris. The Covid-19 restrictions have prevented site work parties for many months, so if anyone has a bit of time to spare and could clean out a nearby trough, that would be much appreciated.

If you do decide to tackle this spring cleaning task, please leave any frog spawn undisturbed, and deposit the silt on a plot rather than leaving it on the grass lane, because that makes mowing tricky.

Thanks you!

    Dear All,

    Unfortunately the trough near our allotment at 117 has a hole. Is anyone able to fix it?
    It is half way up on the south side…obvious if the trough has been filled as it spurts out!

    All the best,

      I have always found cork bungs useful , they can be whittled to shape and then pressed in to the hole.

    Thanks for your great suggestion, Susan – I filled the hole with a piece of cork and it seems to be holding.
