The shop on our allotment site opens on Sunday mornings:

  • Feb-March 10.00-12.00
  • April-July 11.00-12.00
  • Sept-Nov 11.00-12-00
  • Closed in August, December & January

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 woven 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.
