If you love the Cockerel then we'd like your help

Gaynor, the talented artist and sculptress who created the magnificent allotment cockerel was so impressed with our site during a recent visit she has offered to donate her time and skills to create a new sculpture for the Growing Academy on Plot 3.

So, if you have any old metal tools that you no longer want, (it doesn't matter if they are broken or rusty!) please drop them into the 2 metal bins in the Polytunnel on Plot 3.

Thank you for your donations.

Bonfire - Complaint

We recently had a complaint from a local resident to say that one of our plot holders had a bonfire that caused black smoke to drift over to the houses and it was quite unplesant.

Please do remember that all plot holders are required to follow the Bonfire Policy in order to avoid problems. 

Ashbourne Road District Allotments is recognised as one of the UK’s very best green spaces

Today, a record number of parks and green spaces collect a Green Flag Award.

We have been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the very best in the world.

We are among a record-breaking 1,883 UK parks and green spaces that will today receive a prestigious Green Flag Community Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.

This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

New Contact Telephone Number

The Association has a new contact telephone number - 01332 485 018.

Please use this number instead of the old mobile phone we had.

We have a number of options available when you call us now.

Option 1 - Emergency - If there is an emergency on site this will connect you with a member of the Committee. If there is a need for the emergency services please call 999 first before calling us.

Option 2 - Lettings - you will be connected to a member of the Lettings team.

Lost Keys

If you find any keys on the allotments please drop them in the mailbox on the side of the Mundy Community Room or the mailbox on the main gate.
That way there is more chance they will be reunited with their rightful owner.

Thank you.

The Bridge into the Allotments

Following discussions with both Derby City Council and Derby University we understand that the replacement bridge will be installed this financial year (April 2018-March 31 2019) and that the University and Derby City Council will be paying 50% each to replace the bridge into the allotments.

There is currently no date set but it seems more likely to be in either the autumn or winter.

As soon as we know more I'll put an update on this website and on our facebook group.  


Secretary. (May 18)
