The allotment competition gets under way…

Today the ODFAA judges arrived with their clip boards to judge the entered plots…

Some where weedier than others (mainly mine!).  Next judging will be 4th September.


Thank you to all those who entered and supported the association.20160522_153133


Save the date – 17th July 2016


Barracks Lane Allotments Association Summer Open Day

Sunday 17th July 11am – 4pm

Following the success of the recent Spring Social event, we’re now planning a summer open day to get people together, show of the allotments to the public and raise funds for the Association.

If you’d like to be involved PLEASE let us know as we’ll need volunteers, but if not please save the date & come along on the day to enjoy refreshments, have a chat and support BLAA

There will be various stalls and activities for all and the judging of the sunflower growing competition!

We’re also thinking of putting together a fund-raising BLAA cookery book of member’s recipes using allotment-grown ingredients – so if you have a favourite recipe (or two) that you’d like to share – preserves, cakes, savoury dishes etc – please let us know, all contributors will be acknowledged in print!
