Pumpkin Smash this Saturday

This Saturday offers the last chance to take part in  our 2019 Pumpkin Rescue by joining our  Pumpkin Smash  at Stokes Wood Allotments composting demonstration site. The allotments will be open from 10:30 for people to bring their own pumpkins to smash and compost to avoid the cost and  environmental effects of sending the waste to landfill. If you have not saved your own carved pumpkin,  we have over 100 waiting to be smashed and composted  as part of our efforts to encourage households to compost. If you do not have a bin, we can advise on the best bins for your needs including two different sizes of plastic bin available at a subsidised price through a special deal offered by the City and County Council. If you do not want a bin we can advise on post-hole, pit and trench composting as well as on the use of wormeries and bins suitable for waste cooked foods.

Take a small step to reduce the rate of  global  warming while having messy fun. Cakes and refreshments available in the pavilion plus Christmas Craft fair.
