Waiting Lists update

Field stewards have been working hard to get plots for those on the waiting lists. More enquiries from people has meant that our lists are still growing. New members at Scott Road have been allocated small plots, to give new members a chance and reduce the waiting list.

If your plot is too much for you and you want to reduce its size, please let us know so we can make someone on the list happy and allocate them a small plot.

If you want to give up your plot please contact us or your field steward.
