Fund Raising

Members of the Society actively raise funds to assist with creating the allotments at Aldborough Gate. The funds we have raised have assisted with the following projects:

 

          
   * Creating vehicle access from the road to the allotment site
 * Providing a water supply to the allotment site
 * Installing rabbit proof fencing for the allotments
 * Providing an off road parking area for the allotments
 * Creating haulage ways to ease access to the allotments
 * Carrying out landscaping and environmental improvements

                                                                                                                                                                                                     Our current project is the development of the area to the North West of the Allotment Site. Having created a drainage pool to entice local wildlife, we are now developing the area into an orchard area which will benefit all allotment holders. We try to ensure that all new planting on the site encourages foraging and healthy eating. To this end fruit trees have also been planted along the southern edge of the site, as has an area of hedgerow staples like blackthorn, elderberry, hazelnut etc.

Projects for the future include enhancing the drainage through the site as a response to flooding issues, as well as the creation of a ring main water system which will benefit the whole site. We are also looking into the possibility of more community amenities in the form of a society building and/or a communal greenhouse.

If you have any further ideas how we can enhance the site, please get in touch via the website or contact one of the committee members on site.

 There are 2 main sources of "start up" funds:

  1.  Internal fund raising - via events and activities carried out by members of the Allotment Society
  2. External fund raising - seeking grants from any available source.

Working groups have been formed to target both sources of funding.

Working Groups

The working groups, in particular the internal fund raising group, needs the support of all members of the Society. If you can provide any assistance with fund raising please contact any member of the committee.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.
