The information in this section of the website is for current plotholders and those whose interest lies in renting a plot and growing their own vegetables, fruit and flowers.
By now it will be clear that communal events at Boundary Way are halted for the foreseeable future. The AGM and rent collection will now be moved to September. At present plotholders can access the allotments if they adhere to the government guidelines. The National Association has a list of do’s and don’ts which I quote below:
Keep hand sanitiser in your shed and wash your hands regularly
Use hand sanitiser before opening and closing any gate locks
Observe “Social Distancing” with each other 2-3 metres
Do not share tools
Minimise the contact with each other for example no handshakes
Do not wash your hands in water troughs
Penn Gardening Society have told me that they will only open the shop on Sunday mornings and that of course may change so it would be a good idea to contact John Bennett. Incidentally, like many shops they are caught with quite a large amount of stock ready for the growing season, so they will be happy to accommodate customers if possible.
Secretary, Boundary Way Allotments and Community Garden
Boundary Way is a diverse and beautiful site that is always ready to welcome new plot holders and celebrate the achievements of the allotment community, past and present. We have a very active committee that holds regular social events, meetings and open days.
It is not anticipated that there will be an increase to the rents this year. Here are the details regarding rental charges for the coming year:
The costs of plots are as follows:
FULL PLOT- £35.00 | HALF PLOT- £25.00 | RAISED BED- £15.00
Polytunnel table - £5.00

Please note: Plot holders who would like to have a table or raised bed (if vacant) must pay for it at the same time as their plot rent.
Full plot plus polytunnel table: total rent due £40.00.
Half plot plus polytunnel table: total rent due £30.00.
