ROSEDALE ROAD REPORT:
Thanks to George, Norman and Clive R for helping to tidy up the site – it was appreciated.
The plot holder of No.43 is to be asked if they wish to be moved, it is felt that the plot is almost unworkable owing to the brambles that grow through from the field.
Please leave scrap metal by the main gate ready for the next trip. Scrap money has paid for 3 lots of manure, and petrol money. There is a balance of £35.60 in the kitty.
More manure ordered.
