Plot Applications suspended

Find out how to get an allotment

Although we always welcome new members, due to the recent upsurge in interest and applications we currently have a very long waiting list. We have therefore reluctantly decided to suspend applications for the time being until the list has been significantly reduced. We are sorry to disappoint keen and potential gardeners, but the current waiting time is likely to be several years rather than months.

Our site is an exceptional one in many ways but we do wish to point out that running an allotment needs time and dedication, possibly a minimum of 6 hours per week. Some of our new lets are (regrettably) overgrown and need a lot of work in the first few months. Some media portrayals underplay this side and it’s well worth talking to current members to get a more realistic picture and advice. Or, do ask for a meeting with a Committee member on site to see what is involved.
