Site Security

Please could all tenants make sure the gate is always shut fully after entering or exiting the site and not to let anyone on site who does not have a key for the gate. There have been a number of instances of theft and sheds being broken into in recent weeks and we would ask tenants to report any suspicious activity to both the police and Greenwich council parks and open spaces department.

Please note that Violet Farm multipurpose compost is no longer available due to the change in peat regulations. We now stock the Rosedale premium professional brand multipurpose compost at £5.25 for a 60 litre bag
