The Bridge into the Allotments

Following discussions with both Derby City Council and Derby University we understand that the replacement bridge will be installed this financial year (April 2018-March 31 2019) and that the University and Derby City Council will be paying 50% each to replace the bridge into the allotments.

There is currently no date set but it seems more likely to be in either the autumn or winter.

As soon as we know more I'll put an update on this website and on our facebook group.

Bees on the Allotment Site

There are up to four beehives on the allotment site, they are located behind the Mill Dam Car Park.
Bees are usually well behaved as they go about their business BUT they may attack if approached and will attack if disturbed or provoked. If there are any problems of any sort relating to the bees (e.g. swarming) please contact the Bee-keeper, his contact details are on the notice board and at the front of the bee plot. 

Accessible Centenary Plot

An exciting announcement for all plot holders! Last Thursday, after being shortlisted, a group of plot holders were invited to take part in a Derby Dragon's Den Event. Plans were drawn up and speeches rehearsed and the great news is: we were offered support, advice and possibly materials to create an "Accessible Centenary Plot" for all and in particular, people with disabilities - both visible and invisible!

So today is Day One of working in partnership with our new main sponsors for the project - G F Tomlinson.
