Rose Hill raised beds
A pair of new members Kate and Brian asked to join the Allotement Assosiation in 2015.
They needed a suitable small plot with raised beds.
After much discussion and a review of areas at both Seven Stiles and
Rose Hill they felt that the Rose Hill site was the more suitable site.
An existing member kindly gave up a piece their plot
Pleased with their plot
We set about the task of planning to build the raised beds.
The materials for the construction and paved area around the beds
was funded from a grant from Forever Manchester and also from
our own Marple & District Allotment Association.
The beds were designed by Richard.
The construction was undertaken by John Taylor a retired Master Builder
affectionately known as Straight Line John, if you'd seen his plot you'd understand.
