3rd party insurance for your plot
A reminder that 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 DAS 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 (if you don't have a card you may not be a member!) are, of course, welcome to join and take advantage.
If you live in, or near, Duxford and would like to join the short allotment waiting list, please contact the Parish Clerk for details.
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 can rent an allotment. There are sometimes plots immediately available and the waiting list is always short.
Contact the Parish Clerk for more information.
