Selsdon Primary PTA are hosting a clearing of the schools allotment & shed recovery on Friday 24th September 2021 / Friday 1st October 2021 / Friday 8th October 2021 between 3 – 6pm.

Pre pandemic, the school used to have a gardening club in the allotment that is on the playing field. Unfortunately due to Covid, the this has now over grown and at present the gardening club can’t resume.

The PTA would like to help the school get the allotment and gardening club up and running again. 

We are looking for any budding gardeners or anyone that would just like to help; parents, care-givers, grandparents, pupils, teachers etc to volunteer their time after school on the following Fridays: (Weather permitting)

Friday 24th Sept – 3pm – 6pm
Friday 1st Oct – 3pm – 6pm
Friday 8th Oct – 3pm – 6pm

Please bring gardening gloves and any tools such as trowel, shovels, shears etc that you think will be needed to tackle the jungle that has taken over the space. Please see the pictures.

We just need to get it back to a condition where the children and teachers can start prepping for planting etc.

There is also a shed that requires some TLC. The roof needs fixing or replacing and the outside needs a lick of paint. Our aim is to get the shed roof water-tight and looking good prior to the autumnal/winter weather sets in. 

We are also looking for gardening equipment donations for the children. Do you have any unused/spare trowels, shovels, gloves etc? Do you have any seed packets of any kind lying around that you haven’t used or won’t use. 

If the answer is yes, we would be most grateful if you donated them to the school. We will arrange for a trolley or box to be placed in the school entrance for these items to be dropped into.
