Coronavirus emergency measures for allotments

To all plot holders, please follow the following advice. 

You are still permitted to visit your plot to take daily exercise in line with government regulation, but please follow the guidelines below.

  • Daily exercise does not mean spending the whole day on the plot, it is recommended that you visit for a short period of time

It is important that any plot-holders over 70 years and those with underlying health issues follow the guidance and information issued by the government.

Any plot-holder who is self isolating because a household member is ill with coronavirus most not be visiting the site.

It is important that anyone attending the allotment takes care to stay the appropriate distance from others, avoid body contact and wash hands.

It is essential that no unauthorised people are allowed onto the plots for the duration of this emergency.

Members should take the following precautionary measures:

  • Keep hand sanitiser in your shed and wash your hands regularly
  • Use hand sanitiser before opening and closing any gate locks
  • Observe 'social distancing' with each other two to three metres
  • Do not share tools
  • Minimise the contact with each other for example no handshakes

Information about livestock:

  • If you have livestock on the site and the restrictions become more severe, take a photograph on your phone of your livestock, based on what is happening in other countries you may have to print off a government form to leave the house but if challenged it would be good to be able to show a photograph of where you are going.

All communal facilities such as toilets and community rooms are closed.

If you display any symptoms of coronavirus stay at home and self-isolate for at least 14 days or until symptoms have passed.

Please remember to look out for one another during these very difficult times.
