Thank you for the tenants who have used the woody waste facility sensibly. Unfortunately there have also been tenants not following the rules – who have not bothered to stack the material at the back and also tenants who have brought material from outside the allotments
There will be a Community Assembly in the York House, Twickenham Sunday the 10th of December 2-5pm to discuss about What could be done to improve biodiversity in our borough. It is free but you need to register yourself beforehand in the eventbrite site:
Please note that the water from the Bushy park allotment area will be switched off as soon as frosts are forecast.
The WOODY WASTE FACILITY is now open to receive your allotment waste.
Please deposit only the materials that the Council have agreed to remove. These are: –
Please place the material at the back of the empty section and pile it up, do not dump it at the entrance. If the gate is closed, open it by swinging it to the left and deposit your material inside. Take care, the ground surface can be slippery.
The following are NOT acceptable: –
We had to clear green waste fly-tipped against the gate, if this facility is abused it will be closed permanently. When the gate is padlocked the facility is closed, dispose of your waste elsewhere.
WE ARE NOT A GENERAL WASTE MANAGEMENT FACILITY, PLEASE ACT RESPONSIBLY, OTHERWISE THIS FACILITY WILL BE CLOSED!!
Autumn Social Event will be held on Saturday the 14th October from Noon on. The social gathering for tenants and their families will be held in the Shop Car park.

Remember – keep the Allotment Area gates locked – it is a Council Requirement
Dogs must be kept in control in the Allotment area.
No ball games in the communal area or in any other tenants’ plots.
We had a sunny day for our BushyPark Allotment OpenDay. Delicious pizza and other lunch snacks. Great place to get some plants for your allotment plot. A couple of photos in the gallery area here.
Due to circumstances the Open Day that was planned for this Saturday (13th of May) has had to be postponed until the following Saturday 20th of May 2023 12-3pm.
There will be a plant sale and food & drinks as usual.
Apologies for any inconveniencies that this may have caused.
