About our allotments

Due to an increase in demand for our allotment sites, we are temporarily closing the option for new people to join a waiting list for an allotment site. If you have already filled in an application form; there is no need to contact us. There is an expected average waiting time of 1-2 years before we will contact you about a plot that has become available.

 

Fancy growing your own fresh fruit, flowers, herbs and vegetables? Then an allotment could be for you. There are more than 20 sites run by us and most have a waiting list. Having an allotment has many benefits including:

  • growing good quality and fresh fruit and vegetables 
  • a good physical workout and a great way of beating stress
  • making friends and get closer to nature and wildlife
