Plant sale

Denis Vickers, who is the judge at our allotment competitions every year, will be holding his usual charity plant sale this month but with a different format.

The Covid-19 restrictions mean that his sale, which raises money for the Air Ambulance, cannot be open to visitors this year,

Instead, people are invited to make their selection of fruit, vegetable, herbs and other plants from these lists:  plants1, plants2

Once you have decided what you want to buy, please email your choice to, or

They will co-ordinate the orders from plotholders, check availability, then collect the plants  from Denis’s home in Woodnesborough, thereby minimising the number of journeys that have to be made.

They will then let you know how much money you owe for the plants and how to make payment.

Denis is planning  to have the plants ready for collection from Friday, April 24.

Please get your orders in to Terry, Tony or Pearl by 6pm on Wednesday, April 22.

Coronavirus update

Because of the current situation the committee has decided not to switch on the mains water supply at the site.

Please use the water butts on your own plot rather than the communal water butts in order to minimise the risk of infection.

If you have to use taps on the allotment water butts please use gloves.

Please remember to use gloves when opening and closing the main gates.

Loo break

The men’s loo at the site is, unfortunately, broken and out of action. Repairs have already started and a new toilet will be installed but, in the meantime, all members can use the women’s loo.
