We have a great maintenance team who are regularly on site. If you need any help, advice, buy something or order a delivery, please ask them.

The association has a number of petrol operated rotavators and strimmers that are available to loan they must be returned refuelled or a donation made for the fuel used.

Community Room
The Trading Post
Rotavators and Strimers

The community room is for all plot holders to use. There are hot and cold drinks available or you can bring your own (there are facilities to boil water).
There is plenty of seating, so if you want to rest, shelter or meet up with other plot holders please do come along.
It is open most weekends and a lot of the time in the week, but if its closed and you want to use it please ask any member of the committee who should be able to open it for you.

This is our allotment shop. It is open every Saturday and Sunday 10-12 throughout the growing season (March to October).
We sell everything from recycled tools to bags of compost and spare plants. All profits go directly to the association so we all benefit from its success.
