Yorkshire Water temporary hosepipe ban

Yorkshire Water have said the use of hosepipes and sprinklers are permitted to water food crops on allotment sites. However they are not permitted to be used to water flowers.

In light of the restrictions could all plot holders please try, where possible, to limit the use of hosepipes and sprinklers when watering food crops and to use watering cans instead. Watering cans are a far more efficient method of watering plants and so will reduce the amount of water used.
