National Allotment Society COVID-19 Advice

The Hut

Following the government announcement on 23rd March The Hut will be closed till further notice. This will be reviewed as government advice changes.


These will remain closed

Allotment Site

The allotment site  remains open.

Michael Gove MP, UK Minister for the Cabinet Office, stated this morning (24th March) on the television that going to and tending your allotment was considered exercise and therefore allowable under the current more stringent rules for slowing the spread of the coronavirus.

Please continue to keep at least 2 metres away from other people – more is better! Remember the virus can be spread by contact from surfaces so if you touch something like a gate, padlock or tool touched by someone else, wash your hands with soap and water (even if cold) or use a proper hand sanitiser.
