Smaller Allotment Plots

Allotments 03a

Fancy an allotment, but worried about keeping on top of things? Here's some welcome news.

Over the last few months a number of people have asked about smaller plots. Those responsible for managing the Haddenham Allotments recognise that, for many people, a 5-pole plot (125 square metres) is too much to manage.

Or perhaps there are residents who have never had an allotment but are keen to try one from a more manageable starting position?

So, mini-allotments are going to be offered.

The plots will be approximately 5 metres by 2 metres, and it is hoped to have them up and ready for planting in the Spring. The price will be £9 per year.

If people take on a mini-plot, but later want a larger one, they can have one as it becomes available.

If you are interested in a mini-plot, please let Alison Watt (secretary to the Haddenham Allotments) know — she needs to have an idea of how many to prepare.

Alison is hoping that as many people as possible can take pleasure from keeping an allotment.
