Your Kitchen waste should only be plant material. Vegetable scraps an no meat scraps or grease. As long as the manure has sat a while it should be ok. You can put th manure and wood chips in the compost pile it will make it compos faster. You can put the materials that you have supplied all together
May your garden do great!

if you spread the manure as a mulch acorss your allotment or dug it in to the soil 6 months ago it will be pleanty ready. It may not have totally broken down but will be fine for plants.
