- Why do we need to change the locks?
The old padlocks are worn and cannot be closed easily.
The new padlocks will improve site security.
- How will the new keys improve security?
Keys cannot be duplicated, and each has a unique number. Therefore, each numbered key belongs to a registered plotholder.
- Who can have a key?
One key is available for each registered current plotholder.
- What if a plot has joint plotholders?
Keys are available for each REGISTERED current plotholder (up to maximum of two names per plot.)
- What is the cost of the new padlocks and keys for the Association?
Changing the locks is expensive. The cost of each key is £15.00. The cost of all the keys, padlocks and fitting the padlocks is over £2,500. The Association is paying 50% of the price of the keys for CURRENT registered plotholders only. NEW plotholders will pay the full price of £15.00.
- How much will registered plotholders pay for keys?
Each current registered plotholder will pay a DEPOSIT of £7.50 for each key. When they return the key on giving up the plot, they will receive £15.00.
New plotholders (joining after November 2021) will pay a deposit of £15.00
- When will the padlocks be replaced with new padlocks?
The new locks will hopefully be installed on Monday 29th November.
- When can registered plotholders collect keys?
The first opportunity for collecting keys is Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st of November 10-12.00 on both days. Other times will be offered to people who cannot come on those days.
- Where can keys be collected?
Keys will be distributed in the shop and deposits can only be paid by card (No cash).
- What if keys are lost?
In the case of lost keys, copies can only be obtained from the Association by contacting the Membership Secretary, firstname.lastname@example.org
The cost of each replacement will be £15.
