Events

Here we try and keep you up to date with what is new and what is happening on the site. This is one of many pages on this site please feel free to check out a number of them including the; Trading Hut page, the Annual Show, and the Library pages to mention just a few.
Also included are the events occurring at the Emerald Headingley Stadium. This is the Home of Leeds Rhinos, Yorkshire County Cricket Club (this includes Yorkshire Vikings, the name used by the one day and T20 sides) and Yorkshire Carnegie Rugby Union Club. Given that when there are large events on at the ground parking and access to the site can be in issue, these events have been added for information only. The details are taken from the various websites of each organisation and if you are hoping to attend/miss one of these events please be aware these dates are subject to change. As such Burley Model Allotments Association takes no responsibility for the accuracy of this information. As you can see there are a couple of One Day International cricket matches scheduled and also a number of T20 cricket matches in July and August starting at 18.30; so again this may impact residents parking. The full schedule of matches for Leeds Rhinos has not yet been published and when this is available this will be updated. We hope however that this additional information helps in planning your visits to the allotment site.

Volunteers Wanted

We always need people to help with the running of the site. As a self-managed site we rely on volunteers to help us. We welcome new thoughts and concepts with regard to the management of the site, so any help you can give us is appreciated. We are grateful for any general help with the running of the site and it is always satisfying when this help is received. If you feel you can spare some of your time and a little effort then please contact us.

Thank you to everyone who has over the last few years helped with the running of the allotment site. You are too numerous to mention but please be aware that all your efforts do not go unnoticed and on behalf of the committee and all the members of the Association you all deserve a big THANK YOU.

Help with the Site

As always we are looking for help with the running of the site if any member is interested in joining the committee or has a particular interest in developing and working with the Association then please contact us.

Committee Meetings

We are always on the lookout for help, so if you have a burning desire to attend the committee meetings or wish to join the committee or just help out in any other way, then please contact us.

If you would like to attend the committee meetings, these are held on the second Monday of every month at 7.00 p.m. We usually aim to arrive prior to this for a prompt 7.00 p.m. start; this gives Committee Members a chance to catch up on documents such as the minutes of the last meeting. These documents are added to the Library so please check them out to discover what is going on. Joining the Committee is a great opportunity to find out what goes on behind the scenes at the allotment, to get involved and raise and discuss any items you would like to.

Repairs to Site

We have a number of projects we have earmarked for 2017 and 2018 the largest one being repairing the stand pipes to the site. Most of these have not been repaired from the time the site was remodeled in 1958.
We will need to put together some teams to carry out this work, so if you can help in any way, well you know what to do.
So if you can swing a hammer, wield a clipboard or do whatever is needed with a screwdriver, please contact us.

Help in the Hut

The hut is staffed by volunteers and we are looking for help with this. We require more folk to help in the shop on Saturday mornings and if you can make a decent cuppa then so much the better if not full training will be given.

Our hope is that Eileen and Tony will only be needed every other week, as this will allow for some well-deserved respite for them.

The Trading Hut is open between 10.00a.m. and 11.00a.m. every Saturday; (Except Christmas and New Year). We try to have a member of the Committee available in the shop on Saturday mornings but we cannot always guarantee this. The shop is run by volunteers and although we try to answer every issue whenever we can at busy times this is not always possible.

If you feel that you can help us in the Hut, Please contact us.
