From tomorrow Wednesday 4th April and following Wednesday’s the Shop will be open from 5 to 7pm and Saturdays as usual from 11am to 1pm.


There are some seed potatoes, white and red onion sets, and shallots still available for anyone who either has not pre-ordered these or would like extra. Once they’re gone, they’re gone! (No price increase from last year, so these are good value).

While we try to stock things in the shop that we believe some or all of you want, if you think there are other items that you would like us to have available, please let us know. If there is enough demand that we can get it at a good price, then we’ll try our best.

Site Rules

It is part of the agreement for the site is that the plot holders must maintain and cut their paths and the areas around their plots. Some plot holders are not doing this at present.

Also there will no communal compost area on the site in the future. Each plot holder must compost their own stuff. We are still get people put weeds and other items on the bonfire and the CLOSED compost heap. If you are seen to be doing this the council will be informed.
