Mikron Theatre will bring their new show RED SKY AT NIGHT to Scarcroft Allotments on Sunday 22nd May at 2pm. The subject is topical for gardeners….THE WEATHER!

About the show

The wild and wonderful world of weather

Through the chronicles of history, people have gazed up and marvelled at the mysteries of the weather. Generations have tried to master the elements, and understand the magic of the skies.

Hayley’s sunny, beloved dad was the nation’s favourite weatherman. He could make a typhoon sound like a tickle. Hayley is now following in his footsteps, to join the ranks of the forecasting fraternity. Or at least, local shoestring teatime telly.

When the pressure drops and dark clouds gather, Hayley is melting faster than a lonely snowflake. She’s seen the future’s forecast, but will anyone listen?

Bring your anorak and your factor 50. Well, you never know.

Tickets

No tickets required, a ‘pay what you feel’ collection will be taken after the show.

Venue

Scarcroft Allotments can be found on Scarcroft Road, YO23 1PF, with the entrance just opposite the Croquet club and the park. The performance will take place outside, so bring a chair or blanket and why not bring a picnic too.

Updated Tenancy Agreement Terms and Conditions From January 2022

This is the revised Tenancy Agreement coming into use from January 2022.

In the September newsletter we highlighted that a new Agreement was in process and posted an initial draft on the website for information and comment. A number of tenants got in touch by email with the suggestions for changes and improvements. There were also three online Zoom consultations that provided additional helpful feedback. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed. Wherever possible we’ve tried to incorporate all comments and suggestions received. 

The new Tenancy Agreement is intended to help everyone get the best out of their plot in a way that respects and cares for everyone and everything on allotment sites, now and in the future. There is no need to sign and return the Agreement, payment of your 2022 rental invoice will signifies consent to the revised terms.

Tenancy Agreement Updates – September 2021

[THIS CONSULTATION IS NOW CLOSED – For the New Tenancy Agreement please visit this page: Updated Tenancy Terms and Conditions January 2022]

It’s now nearly four years since YACIO took over running the allotments from the City Council. One of the problems we inherited was a Tenancy Agreement that was overdue for review. A hotchpotch of clauses, some of which are outdated, we’ve been conscious for some time that this needs improving. We did make a few changes last year but we’ve now given it a complete overhaul.

Ideally, we’d present the revised Tenancy Agreement at a YACIO members’ meeting. We had hoped to hold one on the 9th October, but due to continuing uncertainty about Covid and social distancing restrictions on numbers imposed by our usual venue we’ve decided it’s not feasible for this to go ahead.

Trustees want to have a tenancy Agreement that’s as clear as possible and has the support and confidence of tenants. We welcome comments and suggestions from members. These can be made by email or via three consultative Zoom sessions we’re holding on the following dates: 12th, 20th and 28th October between 7 & 8pm.

To comment or for Zoom joining instructions please email contact@yorkallotments.org. We look forward to hearing your views.
