NEWS UPDATE

ASBESTOS

9 December 

Please be careful if you approach the site - some kind soul has dumped Asbestos roofing on the roadway today near to the gate, blocking access. As you know this is an extremely dangerous health hazard if touched/disturbed. We have reported it and hopefully it will be removed in the morning - if not, we will be on the case!! Please be careful.

CHRISTMAS TREE NOW UP!

As usual at this time of year, the Christmas Tree is now in the windows of the Pavilion.  Wishing all our plot-holders a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

LEAVES AND WOODCHIP

As usual, we have had many deliveries of leaves around the site over the last few weeks. Please help yourself. We will also be getting supplies of Woodchip from Highbury Tree Surgeons over the next few months - all ready for sorting your plot out for Spring!

Lifford-Lane Allotments 

After guiding and advising Lifford Lane Allotments earlier in the year, they have now set up their own Committee. We have helped them with their grant application for improvements to the site (new gates/fencing, and a Pavilion). We wish them well as they move forward. Any enquiries about their site or for plot vacancies, contact Richard on 0783779977

WELCOME                    

Walkers Heath Allotments are situated on the border of Warwickshire and Worcestershire. The last allotment site to be designed by Geoff Cole in the early 1970's.  We are lucky to be in a quiet little corner surrounded by beautiful par and farmland, with country lanes nearby and wildlife constantly joining us throughout the year. Sitting on the edge of Birmingham in the suburbs of cand Kings Norton, peace and quiet is just a few steps away.

Our site is a friendly community with people from all walks of life who wave hello and stop for a natter while passing with a wheelbarrow or watering can. Retired couples, and those who fit in this enjoyable activity in between and after work and other commitments stop to swap news, tips, talk about the weather and compliment each others efforts, whether experts or beginners.
