New - 3rd party insurance for your plot
All paid-up members of Duxford Allotment Society are now covered by the National Allotment Society plotholders' liability insurance scheme, provided by Shield insurance. This is a new benefit for members and covers plot tenants for accidents or damage to others (e.g. an eye injury caused by flying strimmer debris) caused by their gardening activities up to the value of £50k. This valuable new benefit is automatically included in our NAS membership. Plot-holders who are not DAS members are, of course, welcome to join and take advantage!
At present there are no vacant plots on the Moorfield Road allotments. If you live in, or near, Duxford and would like to join the short waiting list, please contact the Parish Clerk for details.
Thefts in the area remain an ongoing problem, with lead being stolen from the church roof just before Easter. The reminder to be vigilant still stands, as does advice to remove valuable items from allotment sheds and, wherever possible, to leave doors unlocked. It's much less expensive to replace the odd watering can than to mend a crow-barred door/broken hinges.
It is everyone's responsibilty to close the access gates, which should be kept shut at all times.
Please take the trouble to close them every time you leave. Although this may be inconvenent for drivers, it is also time-consuming and inconvenient for visiting thieves.
Please follow us, like us, post up your allotment news, tips, photos and share. Facebook will get the news around and help promote the allotments too.
Renting a Duxford allotment
Growing your own is a great way to get fitter - and make new friends, allotments being quite sociable places.
If you live, or work, within three miles of the Duxford parish boundary you are eligible to rent an allotment. There are sometimes plots immediately available and the waiting list is always short.
Contact the Parish Clerk for more information.
To be held Monday 9 April 7.30pm
at The Plough, St Peter's St.
