The association works closely with its members and the council to maintain and improve amenities on the allotments. We especially aim to provide a strong and united voice in our dealings with the council.

We offer a range of benefits to our members and organise a wide variety of social activities. The cost of membership is £10.00 per year for family membership.

The benefits of membership

  • Quarterly newsletter ‘Dig This!’ packed with relevant news, interesting articles and tips on how to get the most from your plot. Click here to see an example of a previous newsletter (you will need Adobe Acrobat to read it which you can download here)
