There is a local food support initiative at St Peter’s Church, Lords Mead, called Foodbox where they support people in need with food supplies. They are happy to receive fruit and vegetable donations from allotments. Please leave any produce at the church (just leave inside the door) or the vicarage.

Whilst allotment holders are presently welcome to bring their dogs onto site, please ensure they are kept on a lead at all time and faeces are picked up and disposed of in an appropriate manner.
There have been several reports recently about dogs running loose on the allotments. This can be concerning and upsetting to plot holders; dogs may dig up plants, prepared ground and deposit faeces.

We have been sent this lovely photo of one of our younger allotmenteers enjoying their new table and chair kindly donated by one of their neighbours. We love to see items being reused and donated on our sites.
