Watery Lane Allotment & Leisure Garden Association

Our Association, formed 2009, works in partnership with Codsall Parish Council who own and administer Watery Lane Allotment & Leisure Gardens. The aim of the association is to promote the interests of all members in their gardening activities and to conduct negotiations as necessary to improve the facilities at the site.


AGM Minutes can be found in the left hand menu panel under the heading "AGM Information"








  • Has Spring Sprung?

    Very unseasonable weather for late February.Some days around 10 degrees higher that you would expect. It's good to see so many holders getting their plots into shape.


  • Annual BBQ 2019

    Get your pens out as this is a date for the diary. The annual B.B.Q. will take place on Saturday September 7th. on the site. It's bound to be another good one with competitions, raffles, food and, if we're lucky, some tasty beer.


  • AGM 2019

    Another date for the diary.  The A.G.M. will take place on Thursday October 17th at 19.00 at Joeys Lane Village Hall.


  • Plot Inspections

    Plot inspections are due before long.  Activity on the site is increasing and the Council have requested that the inspections teams are more stringent regarding identifying plots that have significant weed problems, especially at plot boundaries and with particular regard to Mare’s Tail.  Also, if anyone has particular problem they can complain directly to the Council.


  • Polytunnel

    Although the Polytunnel looks full at the moment,  if you need some space, please ask Dennis and I'm sure he will find an area for you. However, we do have to be some guidelines on use, so please adhere to the following:
     
    Use restricted to members of the Association.
    Should only to be used for;
                    Propagation in pots or trays
                    Overwintering in pots or trays
                    Plants growing in pots or trays               
                    Small plants like tomatoes or peppers OK               
                    Wiry Plants like cucumbers No!
                    Large shrubs No!

    Please try to keep your plants together in an area on the ample bench space and ensure they are clearly labelled and identified with your name or plot number. In such a confined space, disease control is important to stop spread to other holder’s plants.  As the area is to be shared by all members, please avoid being too greedy with the space. Also members retain responsibility for watering their own plants.

    Anyone using the facility does so at their own risk as neither the association nor the Parish Council can accept responsibility for any loss or damage. 


  • Green Flag

    The 2019 Green Flag Award has been applied for and this year will be a full inspection.


  • Program for raised beds

    The Parish Council grant has come through and materials purchased. A pathway to the plot has been laid and the next bed to be constructed that will allow wheel chair access is already under construction.
