June 2011 Maintenance Team Update
The BHAF has been monitoring the work of the Allotment Maintenance team and in this newsletter we will be giving you updates on their work.
The last month has been a busy one for the allotments maintenance team, what with all the works that need catching up with and with Bruce becoming a new dad – welcome Isla Marie and well done Bruce and Jenny!
Over the last month the team have replaced 11 locks across the city and have undertaken fence repairs on Thompson Road, Lower Roedale, St Marks, Walpole and Ovingdean allotments. Rubbish has been cleared from Weald, Racehill, Roedale valley, Thompson road, Craven Vale, Hildesland and Ovingdean and plots have been strimmed on Eastbrook, Thompson Road, Racehill Patcham Court and Waverley Crescent. Development work has included improvements to Tenantry Down and Craven Vale haulage ways and improvements to Weald car park area. Six new taps and stop cocks have been fitted and a number of small repairs to damaged pipes.
Haulage ways have been strimmed and hedging cut back to allow access on Tennantry down and Waverley Crescent.
Remember if there are site tasks which you think they should be doing on your site you should get in touch with your site rep who can pass your requests on to the council.
