To everyone at Ashbourne Road Allotments
We are so sorry that we can't come to film with you for this series of Gardeners' World and appreciate that this was disappointing news to receive. We too were very excited to come and see and hear about all the amazing things that you are doing on your allotments and know that you have been working hard to get your plots 'TV ready'. The good news is that the producers want us to come in 2020... we will be in touch in the new year to confirm plans, so watch this space!
Ashbourne Road and District Allotments Derby is recognised as one of the UK’s very best green spaces
The Allotments were established in June 1917 and cover over 9 acres, with 130 allotment plots. We can be found on Mackworth Road in Derby
The allotments primary function is to serve the residents of the surrounding area but this should not deter you from applying for an allotment if you live in other areas of Derby.
New members are always welcomed. Vacant plots come up fairly frequently and although there is usually a waiting list of people wanting an allotment on our site this should not deter you from adding your name to the list.
If you would like to put your name down for a plot or find out more about the allotments please contact our Secretary by secretary [at] araa.org.uk (Subject: Website%20Enquiry) (email) or by phone on 01332 485018.
The site is owned by Derby City Council but it's leased by the Allotment Association and managed by an elected Committee. The Committee work hard to ensure all members are able to enjoy recreational gardening to the maximum, in a safe and supportive environment.
