Status at 8th April: No Plots will be let to new members until the Covid-19 related restrictions are lifted. To join the Waiting list please get in touch via "Contact Us"
We are currently operating a waiting list if interested in being added to this list, please get in touch using the "Contact us" menu. Priority for allocation of plots is always given to Speen residents but, should no Speen residents be on the waiting list, plots may be allocated to the wider Newbury community. Application can be made to the Association by emailing the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be sent a form to complete to place you on the waiting list. Alternatively, you may come to the allotments on a Saturday morning when you may be lucky to find the Chairman, Cliff, or other members of the Committee tending to their plots. When plots are available you will be contacted and offered a plot. Remember that Speen residents ALWAYS take priority and may overtake a non-Speen resident on the waiting list. Allocation of plots is at the discretion of the Committee and they reserve the right to allocate plots as they see fit.
What is a 'pole' ? An allotment is traditionally measured in rods (perches or poles), an old measurement dating back to Anglo-Saxon times. 10 poles is the accepted size of an allotment, the equivalent of 250 square metres or about the size of a doubles tennis court.
