WELCOME! (please bear with us, pruning our website is an ongoing task) December 2019
The management team hope all our members and plot holders have had a successful growing season. We are in for a long winter again. This year has been mainly warm with mixed weather. This autumn has been very wet and a few very cold nights. Remember that an allotment is for the whole year, so carry on planting. If you are not sure what you can plant, ask one of your fellow plot holders. This is the best time of the year to get your plot ready for the spring planting. Most of us are lucky and have light soil, therefore a winter dig is possible.
If you are a member you can ask for the new Kings seed catalogue, it has a seed planner, if you are not, it is still possible to join only £4.55. Seed orders now must be sent direct to Kings Seeds, you must remember to add £2.00 for postage.
At Mansfield Woodhouse Garden Holders Association, we aim to help our plot holders old and new to enjoy their plots. We encourage plot holders to share their experience with each other, make new friends. Have the satisfaction of eating fresh fruit and vegetables that you've grown yourself, also having freshly cut flowers at your disposal throughout the Spring, Summer and Autumn months.
The current Rent and Membership Rules are expected to change for the new season. We will make an announcement in the New Year on how these changes will be implemented. (Pending).

We have asked Mansfield District Council for the area behind Newcastle Street Known as Priory Road Allotments, to be returned as allotments asap, to accommodate the increase in demand. There is now a waiting list of 30 people. Last winter it was decided the area would be upgraded to current requirements. A new cart road with plots sized to workable use.
The installation of a water main so that water tanks can be installed.
Mansfield District Council has now taken off the proposed Traveller transit/permanent site. Known as Priory Road allotments. This now allows the original plan to become reality.
