Dear friends,

In the light of general concern about the spread and impact of the virus Ashby Town Council has requested that we circulate the attached notes for guidance with regard to using our allotments over the next weeks.  Please read them carefully and understand that you should refrain from using the compost toilet and that you are responsible for providing your own hand sanitiser.

Please also be aware that we have cancelled all future shop opening dates and postponed our AGM to a date not yet decided.

We cannot use our meeting room so need to cancel our scarecrow workshop and have been informed that Ashby Open Gardens will also be cancelled.

We will keep you informed of other changes as the weeks progress, but in the meantime would encourage you to use the allotment site for outdoor recreation and exercise, but keep the advised distance from others as the advice dictates and make sure that any children you have with you stay on your plot.

Further information is available on the website of the National Allotments Society
