All of our usual events at the site are listed here, including; all the Committee Meetings, the Coffee Mornings and Plant Sales, Apple Press Afternoons and all this leads up to the Annual Show our crowning glory of the year. The year concludes with the Annual General Meeting.

Help wanted

All of the events we run on the site are for members of the allotment as well as the wider community, without help we would not be able to continue to function, we do need your help so if you can in some small way ease the burden of the few it is most appreciated.

Here’s a few ideas that we always need help with; some baked goods for the Coffee Mornings or the Annual Show, some spare plants for the Plant Sales, Prizes for raffles, some of your time to help put up and take down items like marquees for the Show, help with the Apple Pressing, the list goes on and on but any help you can give would be more than welcome.

So without further ado here is the schedule of events to be held here at Burley Model Allotments.
