SSN Rabbit Fencing 2009


NetworkRail has now, as promised, supplied anti-rabbit netting for Sunnyside New, to complete the job of protecting the allotments from ingress of rabbits from the railway embankment.


Those tenants most affected (ie those with gardens abutting the railway) should already have been written to asking them to remove all obstructions to allow access for a digger to excavate a trench along the fence line. (Access for the digger from the roadway will be via plot 3 and between plots 12/13). Clearance needs to be completed before 2nd November. Offers of help might be appreciated by tenants on plots 1-13.


The digger will be in operation during the week 2-6 November. Installation of the netting and backfilling of the trench will take place on Saturday 7th November (and Sunday November if necessary). We will need as many helpers as possible on 7th November to complete the job, especially tenants from Sunnyside New who will all benefit from the project.
