A little about us:

There is no road leading directly to the site – access is via a footpath through Montrose Avenue Playing Fields. This means that it can be very difficult to arrange deliveries – we require permission from Barnet Council to open the gates to the playing fields and they only agree if the ground is not soft. Even then the process of arranging for the gates to be opened is lengthy and unreliable and several times we have had to turn away delivery trucks when the gates have not been opened for us despite arrangements being made with the council in advance.

On the plus side this means that the site is quite peaceful – bordered by the train line, blocks of flats and the park. There are plans to redevelop the playing fields but it is not clear yet what the impact this will have on the allotment site. We are taking a keen interest in the plans to see what it means for access to the allotments and also the security our site.

We encourage members to participate in communal activities lasting 1.5-2 hours monthly about 8 months of the year. During these sessions we clear communal pathways, maintain the wildlife areas etc.
