It takes place on 6 July at 12.30pm. David Kimpton will talk about the Irrigatia watering system at his allotment.

He took over an allotment last year and by that summer, after killing a variety of fruit and vegetables through neglect, he realised the amount of watering required. An impending two week holiday kick-started an action plan to address the ongoing watering problem.

Find out how he resolved the problem with an irrigation system that could function without mains power or a tap and was suitable for an allotment.

The talk will finish at 1.15pm and will be held at the Chiswick Horticultural & Allotment Society (“CHAS”) Trading Hut on Staveley Road, W4 2SJ opposite the Chiswick School playing fields.

Tickets are £2 for members and £3 for non-members, with free admission for children.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.
