Community growing in the heart of the Calder Valley
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
To protect the health and well being of all our members and ensure that we can continue to keep our allotments open we have made some decisions in line with UK Government advice and from the National Allotment Society.
These have not been easy decisions to make as they go against the friendly and open spirit of Redacre. But, in these difficult times we have had to look at maintaining access to Redacre whilst considering the need of all our members for a recreational space which we can all enjoy safely.
- The communal area in and around the Roundhouse is now closed.
- This area can no longer be used for gatherings or recreation, even if social distancing rules are observed.
- Keep the gate locked at all times and after entering and leaving the site.
- Use hand sanitiser before opening and after closing the gate lock.
- Keep hand sanitiser in your shed (or with you) and wash your hands regularly. (Anti-bacterial soap and a blue paper roll are available in the Roundhouse.)
- Do not share tools.
- Minimise the contact with each other (for example no handshakes).
- Wash your hands before eating or drinking and when you get home
- Do not gather in groups for a chat even if you are 2 metres apart click here for guidance.
- Observe 2-3 metres “Social Distancing” with each other.
- If you do take your children to your plot, ensure that they stay within its confines and do not run around on communal paths, in polytunnels or communal spaces.
- Children should be closely supervised at all times and must not play with equipment on site.
Polytunnels & Chicken Enclosure
- Polytunnels and the chicken enclosure should not be occupied by more than two people at any one time.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in these difficult times.
Welcome to Redacre
Founded in 2009 Redacre transformed a derelict former landfill site into a productive, community based local food initiative and growing space.
We have allotment plots, raised beds, polytunnel spaces, a bee apiary, chickens and a communal Roundhouse which we use as an events space and community space.
As well as providing space for local people to grow their own food, Redacre uses local land for recreational benefit, encouraging sustainability and adding to the sense of place in the community for all.
