FREE compost giveaway 1

Roll up, roll up – free compost, read all about it!

Yep you heard us! On 12 September at Needham Lake (Access from B1078 Coddenham Road, IP6 8NU) and 19 September at Bridge Street car park in Hadleigh, from 9am - 12pm, we’re giving away 480 bags of free compost at each event, all in the name of recycling, gardening and homegrown veg.
Attend the Needham Lake event
Attend the Bridge Street car park event
Previously, our annual Shovel It event in Mid Suffolk saw you dash for your gardening gloves, spades and trailers, but this year things are obviously a little bit different so we’re giving away ready-packed bags of compost instead.
To keep everyone as safe as possible and ensure we can still put on this event for you, it’ll be a drive through event only (we figured it might be a little bit difficult to walk or cycle home with up to two big bags of compost in tow) – all you need to do is roll up, sit back and pop your boot open for us. It’s that simple.
Some housekeeping:
• You will be allowed up to two bags of compost per car
• Once it’s gone, it’s gone
• A one way traffic system will be in place with staff on hand to guide you through
• Please don’t get out of your car, if possible, to help our staff maintain social distancing
• All the compost has been supplied by Suffolk’s Material Change facilities using recycled garden waste - find out more about the facilities on the Suffolk Recycling website

Please do share this event with your family and friends in the district - otherwise, happy gardening!
