We have achieved self-management

Balloons_clip_art_medium As all members know we’ve been working hard for the last couple of years to go “self-managed”.

This means the committee (and members) take over managing the site from Merton Council.  The Council stills owns the land, and we pay a rental fee for using the site.  We’re also responsible for paying things like the water rates.

We signed all the final agreements and have – from 1 October 2015 – become self-managed.

Why go self-managed? It puts more of the control of the site in our (plot holders) hands, and means we can collect the rents from plot holders and use them to pay all the bills,  make sure the site is well kept and invest money in current and future projects (like the shed and communal plot – Plot 83 on the Horseshoe)

We want to know how you would like to see the site developed so please do come along to the AGM in November and make your voices heard!
