The shop on our allotment site will be open on Sunday mornings from 11 am until 12 noon until the end of November, and will re-open in mid-February.
NO CASH – we can only handle card payments. (See stock list below.)
It is staffed by volunteers from the committee and is a good place to find us if you need to speak to someone about your plot/the site. It normally sells seeds, fertilisers of various kinds, and garden sundries including black plastic mulch. See below for more details.
We can lend out manual push mowers on request from the shop.
We do not maintain these mowers, or charge for use.
