Above all, we want you to enjoy allotment gardening and learn something about growing your own food. But we do expect certain things of you in return.

 

Firstly, we expect you to cultivate your plot. We don’t expect you to do it all at once, because getting your plot into good order will take time and a lot of hard work. But we do expect you to make a reasonable effort to keep your plot tidy, the grass cut, and the weeds under control.

 

Secondly, we ask you to abide by the society’s rules, which can be found in our membership card and rule book and members’ registration form, also the society’s health & safety policy. You can download all three documents from the 'Downloads' page of this website. 

 

Our rules and safety policy are for the benefit of everyone on site. As well as cultivating your plot, we ask you to be considerate to your neighbours and safety-aware, respect other members’ plots and produce, keep paths around your plot clear of obstructions, keep dogs on leads, avoid causing a nuisance with bonfires, and take away all rubbish and hazardous items. You should also obtain permission before erecting or replacing a shed, greenhouse or similar structure. 

 

Please note that rents are paid annually, and must be paid by 31st December for the following year, otherwise you risk losing your plot.
