CHECK YOUR PLOT FOR STORM DAMAGE WITHOUT DELAY
If you haven't already bitten the bullet and checked your plot for storm damage, then gird up your loins and go down this weekend. Although other areas of Kent have had it a lot worse, there has been damage to sheds, greenhouses and polytunnels. You may not be able to repair anything just yet, but you can move tools etc to safety.
If you haven't already let us know your email address, and are happy to have it held on the Committee's database (it won't go anywhere else, we assure you!) then please do send it to firstname.lastname@example.org without delay. Having your address on the database will mean you can be notified of anything which you need to know promptly, without relying on the council, who have made allotments their lowest priority.
We have been notified of two damaged sheds on William Road site, and do not have contact details for the owners. Dave and Cheryl's shed has lost its roof - if you know them please tell them - and a shed made of twin-wall brown polycarbonate, of the kind sold inexpensively by DIY stores, has so completely dismantled itself and blown away that we are not sure even where it came from - possibly John's plot? - on the larger side of William Road site.
Flooding on William Road site was so bad on Christmas Eve that council officials issued sandbags to protect 8 houses on William Road itself which were at risk. If you are affected by this problem it is being dealt with by Helen Wilson at email@example.com , or phone in on 01233 330476. The ward councillor for the area is Jeremy Adby at firstname.lastname@example.org, and he is aware of the problem. By all means contact him, as he should know how many people are affected.
