Acle Allotments

Acle Allotment Association

There are currently 40 plots of varying size on the Boat Dyke Lane allotment site with 42 active members involved in their cultivation. The allotment site was initially established under local (Parish) council control and was later extended to its current size. Since 2002 it has been operated by the Acle Allotment Association (AAA).

 The association holds two annual events, the first being our BBQ for members and family which is usually scheduled for mid-July. This is followed closely by our Open Day, when we open up the allotment site to visitors. In addition to affording visitors the opportunity to view the allotment site and individual plots, visitors can sit back and enjoy refreshments, take part in the raffle and purchase cakes/produce from our allotment stalls. This is our main income generator so we look forward to greeting all those who can make it on the day; usually in mid-August so look out for posters advertising the event.

 We produce a member’s newsletter, this is published at regular intervals throughout the year and helps keep members in touch with association activities and events. We have recently launched our own website which is open to all visitors.

 If you would like to find out more about the allotments or the workings of the association then please do not hesitate to contact either Robin Cushing (our Chairman) on 01493 750277 or Gwilym Foulkes (our Secretary) on 01493 751947.
