Allotments and coronavirus

Do not visit your allotment if you are unwell or displaying any of the symptoms associated with Covid-19.

Please follow all government requirements for self-isolation. If you have been advised to stay at home, please do so.

If you go to your allotment, please follow social distancing rules and use good hygiene around locks, gates, taps and any infrastructure that might be touched by more than one person.

Please do everything you can to keep yourself and others safe.

An allotment is a piece of land you can rent to grow your own fruit and vegetables. You might want an allotment to:

  • put fresh, tasty produce on your plate
  • teach children about growing food
  • enjoy being out in the fresh air
  • get fit doing some digging
  • reduce food miles
  • grow organically

More information on allotments is available on the National Allotment Society website.

At a local level, you can to contact the Cheltenham and District Allotment Holders' Assocation.
