Welcome to our website!

 
Marlborough Road allotments
is a large site of nearly 100 plots with excellent facilities for its members, including kitchen, WCs and shop.  The site is open each year to the public for plant sales in the spring period and a Summer show.  A number of activities support local charities, including a sponsored walk and coffee morning.

This website is primarily aimed at members of the allotment, but "allotmenteers" in general and gardening enthusiasts might also be interested in the content.  If you want to get in contact with us please go to the "Contact us" page. 
Members of the allotment can access "MEMBERS PAGES" (by invitation only).

ANY INFORMATION?
This website will only be as useful as the information contributed to it.  So if you have any news, pictures, recipes, etc. let us know via the "contact us" page or the allotment email address.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS FOR MEMBERS:

FIRES:
No fires to be lit between 1 April and 1 October 2014.


FLOWER BEDS:
Every border has to have a flower bed, minimum 3 feet deep, maximum 6 feet deep, at the front bordering onto the main path, and Trafford Council rules specify that it must be for flowers only – NOT any fruit or vegetables.

FRUIT TREES:
Trafford Council state that there is to be no cutting back of mature fruit trees without notifying the committee who will in turn inform Trafford.  Anyone cutting back fruit trees, bushes or canes on another person’s plot without permission will be asked to leave their plot immediately.  This is a condition of the lease with Trafford Council dated October 2005.  A copy is displayed on the notice board inside the pavilion.

GATES [UPDATED]:

Please help keep our allotment secure by following these simple rules "The allotment gate code":

- Gates are locked = Relock
- Gates are unlocked = Leave unlocked
- Gates are open = Leave open
- The last one to leave (e.g. no other cars, its late, etc.) - Close and lock BOTH gates

PATHWAYS:

Please note back and side paths should be 3 feet wide to allow for mowing. Narrow paths cause a problem for mowing so please make good your path if necessary.

USE OF SPRINKLERS:
Trafford Council have made a ruling that sprinklers are not allowed and neither is the cleaning of vegetables, tools etc in the water butts. Also please remember to turn off the water after filling water butts.
