Bonfires are currently allowed on the RAA allotments between 1 November and 31 March but we’d prefer you to minimise the number of times you light a bonfire.
Remember: Burning causes air pollution which is harmful to older people, children and those with respiratory diseases and adds to global heating emissions. Burning plastics or rubber creates carcinogenic toxins that can be harmful if inhaled or through skin contact and can pollute soil for decades.
Alternatives to burning: Composting is best for all plant materials and will benefit your soil fertility. Branches and logs stacked on your plot can form a useful wildlife habitat. Recycling is safer for the environment for anything that can’t be composted. Vale Street recycling centre is right then left at the end of Rosendale Road (visits require booking) or you could use a green waste scheme for individual houses.
If you have a bonfire: Check for hedgehogs/other wildlife buried in any stack before lighting – it is best to MOVE the bonfire to a different location. Only burn dry wood and plant materials. Using a bin incinerator will burn hotter, more completely, reduce pollution and because it can be covered it is safer to leave when still smouldering.
Some don’ts: NEVER burn plywood, chipboard, MDF or any painted or treated wood. NEVER burn domestic rubbish, rubber, carpet, polystyrene or anything with plastic, foam or paint. NEVER use engine oil, meths or petrol to light the fire. Don’t light fires if the weather is very windy or local air pollution is high. NEVER leave a fire unattended or to smolder, douse everything well with water before leaving.
UPDATE, Stores: Our Stores are now open again for the growing season. Please order online for the time being. Follow the links in recent RAA newsletters to find our current stock list and details of how to order.
– The people you live with;
– Your support bubble, or, when you are on your own
– One person from another household.
Children under five, as well as disabled people dependent on round-the-clock care are not counted towards the limit on two people meeting outside. Children must remain on or very near to their parentsʼ/carers’ allotment. They MUST NOT be allowed to stray onto other plots or roam around the allotments. If the toilet is open any visits by children should be supervised.
Toilets closed: They increase the potential for infection spread.
Tool hire service closed: For the safety of staff and hirers involved we have stopped the tool hire service for the time being. Plot holders should also not be lending/sharing tools or equipment with each other.
Restricted access: The Community Building and the old Committee hut can only be entered by staff or volunteers approved by the Management Committee.
Coronavirus ARCHIVED NEWS: Don’t come to the Rosendale allotments if you have any of the key symptoms – high temperature, breathing difficulties or cough.
We suggest you bring anti-bacterial or antiseptic wipes to clean the key pad locks before use at the three gate entrances then clean your hands after using the key pads.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water after entering the site – under running water at the nearest tap. DO NOT use or rinse hands in the actual water tanks.
Keep your distance from others – two metres (three paces) minimum and catch coughs/sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve. The allotments, especially at the moment, is not the place for gatherings or parties.
Children under supervision are welcome but they must remain on or very near to their parentsʼ/carers’ allotment. They MUST NOT be allowed to stray onto other plots or roam around the allotments. Any visits by children to the toilet should be supervised.
Coronavirus ARCHIVED NEWS: We are turning on the water early – hopefully by this weekend (21 to 22 March).
– Most water tanks have taps which can be used for hand washing, all you need to bring is soap.
– DO wash hands under running water.
– DO NOT wash or rinse hands in the water tanks.
– We hope to install extra hand washing facilities at the main entrance so people can wash hands easily after entering or leaving the site.
AGM cancelled: The Annual General Meeting was planned for 21 April but it has been cancelled and will be rescheduled in the autumn.
Centenary events cancelled: The summer events involving films and open days are cancelled. We can find other ways to mark the centenary and move some events into 2021.
Plot inspections cancelled: The May inspections will also be rescheduled to later. There is enough stress on plot-holders without having to worry about failing plot inspections. The building will still be used occasionally by RAA staff and volunteers helping run the allotments but we will be avoiding any meetings.
Community Building closed: Please don’t come into the building without a good reason. We want to keep the building safe for staff.
Site safety: When working your plot please give particular attention to safety issues for yourself and other plot-holders. For example any dangerously uneven paths bordering your plots and any sharp/projecting/overhanging objects/plants that could hurt passers-by.
