COVID-19 *Update*

For the moment we are still able to gain access to Lamperds Field and Elizabeth Road allotments to work our plots. Both Ladies and Gents toilets are now open, please use the sanatising products supplied when using the facilities.

Unfortunately we are required to close the kitchen at Lamperds Field. This is as a result of a communication from our Town Council, who own Lamperds Field site, allowing this.

They say that the allotments can stay open but people MUST abide buy the Government guidelines of the day, in particular social distancing. Plotholders should stay within their family group and at least 2 metres (6ft+) away from others. Please do your best to conform so that we do not lose our right of access.

Each person is responsible to keep to the rules.

Coffee Mornings are cancelled until further notice.
