 Plot Inpections 12th/13th May 2018

The first full plot inspections will be carried out this weekend.

The checks that are done are as follows

Is the plot number clearly displayed, is it being cultivated, have the paths around the plot been maintained, is the shed of standard construction and in good order and the required 0.5 metres from the boundary of the plot, is the greenhouse of standard construction and in good order, are there any carpets, or tyres on the plot,

The committee will then decide if there is any remedial action required by the plot holder and an improvement notice may be issued

Eglinton Growers have applied for a grant from North Ayrshire Council.

At Ayrshire College in Kilwinning there will be ‘Market Street’, where members of the public look at all the grant requests and put their signature on the ones that they like. The more signatures we get the more likely we are to get the grant.

If we can get as many members to go along to sign their name, hopefully our grant request will be approved
