The allotments on Willoughby Road have been in existence for over 60 years now. Three years ago, amid fears of rising council rents it was decided to form an association. Since then the allotments have gone from strength to strength.
As we speak the allotments are full, with a short waiting list. We are hoping with this new website, designed by Black Cat Designs of Boston and Realflame Digital to not only attract new members but to show a wider audience more about the allotments & how to enjoy a healthier lifestyle.
We are in the process of receiving funding to install a modular building which will have a toilet, kitchen & meeting room with outdoor cooking & seating area on our community plots. It’s our aim to be more involved with our local community, our members litter pick throughout the town, assist Boston in Bloom, being on the judging route the last two years helping the town win a gold award from the RHS East Midlands in Bloom.
Also we were the first allotment site in Lincolnshire to open for the NGS (National Garden Scheme) last helping to raise funds for various charities. We have regular working parties to keep the site as tidy as possible & there has been a vast improvement over the last three years. Thanks to everyone who helps out & also to everyone who supports the committee in their work. Once again a big welcome to our new digital beginning, have a look round, leave comments, suggestions, but most of all come & enjoy our humble allotments.
