GATE LOCKS

To reduce problems with our gate locks we oil them on a regular basis (if we remember) - about once a month. Unfortunately this does mean that keys may well get a bit messy for a few days so please be aware.

THE ASSOCIATION SHOP

whoweare

Open 9 AM to Noon on Saturdays only

Site Gates

As previously mentioned - the main gates into Eddington are to be adjusted to overcome various problems. Meanwhile please take care when the wind is blowing - the gates are heavy and controlling them can be a challenge. We don’t want any accidents.


The gates leading to Jessops also need attention. This is on the work list.


The realignment of the gates at Station Road is still in the development stage - we have moved past the need for planning permission. The car parking is to be sorted out with better surfacing and then the entrance will be replaced.

Stay at least 2 metres apart at all times when on site

SLUG PELLETS

The UK ban on blue Metaldehyde has been over-ruled by the courts due to poor procedures. However, we will not be stocking this product again as the ban is likely to be re-applied and the product is regarded as harmful to wildlife beyond its target. Alternatives are available.

We no longer stock Metaldehyde pellets.
