Burton Latimer Allotments Association

We are part of The National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners, and have a 10-year lease on a 4.5 acre site at the end of Jacques Road (off Higham Road). There are currently over 70 gardeners tending plots of various sizes – and there is a waiting list of 10 persons. A committee oversees the running of the site, and our AGM is held on the last Thursday in March.
