Main Car Park

Hi Everyone. 

This message is for anyone who uses the main car park (that’s the one where the shop and store container is) so if you don’t park your car there you can stop reading now. 

Updated Covid 19 Guidance for site - July 2020

  • You may now enjoy a walk around site however you must maintain the latest government recommended social distance at all times
  • Do NOT enter anyone else’s plot without prior permission.  Please respect the wish of others to self-isolate their plots
  • Always sanitise your hands or wear disposable gloves when touching the lock, toilet door handles, pumps or any communal facility
  • Non-member family and friends may now join you on your plot but only if accompanied by a paid-up member of the Association

Staying Safe and Well

Whilst we have always taken pride in describing ourselves as a friendly community allotment site, please be mindful that at the moment some people may be self isolating on their plots. A cheery hello, a wave and a conversation from a distance may be very welcome but please observe a safe distance for everybody’s safety during these difficult times.

Also please either use gloves or ensure hands are clean when opening and closing the gate.  

Let’s keep our community safe and well.

ARDAA Committee 

The Allotment Shop is currently Closed due to the Covid-19 Crisis.

We now take card payments as well as cash - so there is no excuse not to support our Shop.

Card payments

We have in stock our best selling local honey, various seed potatoes, onion and shallot sets and various varieties of Mr Fothergill’s and Johnson’s seeds.

We are now stocking peat free compost and many many other items.

Come see us every Saturday and Sunday 10am to 2pm volunteers permitting.

Gardeners World visit postponed!

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!
