Plot Vacancies

posted 10 Jun 2016, 01:31 by Woburn Sands Allotments   [ updated 3 Nov 2018, 09:04 ]

Unfortunately we do not have any plots available at the moment and are currently operating a waiting list.

If you are interested in a plot, either send an email to the secretary, or fill out the form on the Contact Us page and we will contact you as soon as a plot becomes available.



Rubbish

posted 10 Jun 2016, 01:25 by Woburn Sands Allotments   [ updated 10 Jun 2016, 01:26 ]

Members are reminded that there is no facility on site for rubbish to be left.
It is the members responsibility to dispose of this themselves, not to leave it to the committee by dumping it by the notice board.

A recent working party had to spend a morning filling a skip with waste materials, including some rather unpleasant chemicals, from a recently vacated plot.

If this needs to be repeated on a regular basis there will be little option but to increase the fees for plots as the cost of maintenance is becoming untenable.

Site Security Issues

posted 2 May 2013, 14:38 by Woburn Sands Allotments   [ updated 15 May 2014, 01:58 ]

Please be aware, there are still issues regarding theft of items from sheds.  
We would advise that no valuable items are stored in sheds and that items that are left in sheds are stored out of sight. 
Thieves have been stealing things like portable cookers and kettles as well as Lawnmowers/ Rotovators so nothing is safe.

What's happening on the field.

Gates and Padlocks
Gates are still being left open. Please make sure you close and lock them after use. We know the padlocks are sometimes difficult. however they are regularly oiled and do need patience rather than brute force to open them.
If you lose your gate key, please contact a member of the committee for a replacement.
Please do not climb over the gates

Fencing
The fencing has now been replaced on Woodland Way.

Driving on the field
Driving on the field should be for loading or unloading only. Vehicles should not be left on the tracks or plots while you work on your plot.

If like me, you are not quite sure when is the best time to sow under glass, in open ground or in seed beds, there is a page to give you just this information. Either click Vegetable Growing Timetable or use the side menu to access this page.
