I've just had an e-mail from Clare from Longhorn Western Riding, the horse riding school in Longhedge that use the neighbouring woodland.
Because of the extreme weather they're unable to use their normal routes, so have asked if they can pass through the allotment. I've said yes as Clare has been very helpful and accommodating in the past and it's only fair that we return the favour. The allotment is relatively un-rideable (on bikes) right now anyhow so it's unlikely to affect any of us but if you are there over the next few snowy days please say hi to the horse riders in the knowledge that they are there with our permission.
