We have had to delay “Walking the Land” at the allotments until Saturday 26th June, at 10am. This delay is due to the contractors employed by Fingal Co Co not being able to carry out essential work on time.

All going well on Sat 26th, we hope to assemble at the Skerries Mills car park to meet for a briefing in the Mills, then walk up to the allotments site on the Golf Links Road. The positive view to take here is that we are getting very close to the openning of our own allotments for Skerries. Keep the faith for a few more weeks, we will get there!

We will be to issuing hard copy applications to people who have applied already, just to confirm that you’re still happy with the allotment size and whether you want to stay with Organic/Non Organic. Also, we will need to know your level of growing experience. This will allow us to plan the locations of individual allotments.  After the briefing we will form work party’s and walk up to the allotments to help clear stones and get familiar with the fields. Please bring some of your gardening tools. We will walk the land and give you an idea of the layout of the organic and Non-Organic areas.

We are now getting much more positive news from Fingal Co Co. they hope to rectify the access problem with the field and get it ploughed and harrowed before the 26th June. Fingal Co Co have also said that the Water issue will be sorted out.

So if you can, please come along on Saturday 26th June…… The more the merrier, so we can get in there quicker.
