Allotment Shop 

The shop is open every Saturday from 10-12, selling excess produce in season, seeds, plants, sundries plus refreshments, all at bargain prices.  Stock at present includes: 

  • Canes – all lengths 
  • Netting to keep the birds and cats at bay – 2 widths, 2m and 3.2m 
  • Fleece to keep out bugs but allow the rain in – invaluable for carrots and root crops 
  • Various fertilizers including Growmore and Fish Blood and Bone 
  • Garden lime 
  • Other sundries       

The Plots 

There are 51 plots of 10 rods or 250 square metres each.  All the plots are currently occupied with a waiting list open to parish residents only.  Any plots that are to be given up are vacated at the end of the year.  If you would like to go on the waiting list either visit the allotment shop, which is open every Saturday 10-12, or contact the BGA Secretary, Julia Miller, on 01476 562915 or by e-mail: julia.miller@talktalk.net.
