Wish 1
Type of wish
Materials (donation)
What do you need?
The group are looking for a metal storage container, either 20ft or 32ft to allow us to store all the equipment we have amassed. The equipment is currently scattered among the group members for safe keeping. SeaSalt Streets have identified a suitable site close to the town centre for the container and, should we succeed in securing one, will apply to North Ayrshire Council for the relevant permissions. The container must be water tight although the condition of the exterior is irrelevant,(we have successfully funded and erected 3 murals!!!) Although we don't have a timescale, the sooner we secure permanent storage, the more projects we can tackle.

Request for voluntary time from contractor - specific (e.g. specific financial, business, design or other skill-based support)
What do you need?
SeaSalt Streets are trying, in Wish 1, to secure a steel storage container. In the event of one becoming available, we would be looking for someone to transport it to site. Assuming the supplier if Wish 1 cannot transport it.

Shrubs removed Mare's tail removed - extensive growth. Access from Tunnel needs looked at Access from stairs at PE. Garden 2 Disability access- none Removal/Making safe stone sculpture Removal/Transformation of rocky area in middle of the garden. Garden 3 Established Grass needs cut Poly tunnel repaired Raised slabs due to roots of large tree.

Wish 1
Type of wish
Materials (donation)
What do you need?
We have a track going through our site that is car accessable, essential for many of our older members to get close to their plots but due to the high rainfall of late it is in an awful condition, full of potholes making driving on it pretty awful. We would love any excess type 1or 2 local companies can provide in order to keep it in a drivable condition. We also hope to extend our events area (which also frequently floods)and raise it with type 1or 2. Our group provides free events throughout the year, including a free Easter and Xmas event for local children.

Wish 3

We are hopeful to dig 1 or 2 soakaways/wildlife ponds on our site to help with the flooding issue. It would have a double benefit, one being to encourage wildlife onsite and secondly move water away from our plots/enabling us to open up more plots to the community (we have a large waiting list) We are there fore looking for local companies with digging machinery who would be able to work with us in order to dig these small scale ponds and trenches.
