It requires regular effort throughout the first year and some time and
dedication is required to maintain your plot, but cultivating an allotment can be a very rewarding
The society has a number of plots that are currently available.
Some plots may be in an uncultivated state if they haven’t
been worked for a few years, however, from time to time it is possible to
obtain a plot that has recently been vacated and has just got a bit out of hand.
The plots are approximately 250 square metres in area, though it is
possible to rent half a plot if you think this area it too large for you to
manage alone.It is also possible to share a plot with a friend or two which
makes the going a little easier and more social as well. You will also find that other plot holders
are only too happy to offer advice and encouragement to help
get you started, we’re a friendly bunch.
There is a water trough on site for use by the plot holders. The society
pays for the water that is used.
The price for a full allotment plot is currently £15 for the calendar
year and £7.50 for a half plot.
If you would like more information or would like to take up the
challenge of growing your own produce please contact the society’s Treasurer –
