Welcome to our website. All our relevant news and information for members will be on this page. If any members have anything they would like to contribute to the website then please leave a comment below.

We have a thriving allotment community here at Firs Estate with 52 plots on 6.5 acres of land. The main entrance is on Dean Street, at the junction with Harrison Street, opposite the Londis shop. The postcode is DE22 3PU.

This is a private site (rather than a council-owned one) and is leased by the association from the landowners. The site is run by a management committee which is elected by the plotholders. Tenants who rent a plot automatically become members of the association.

We are in a sheltered position on a south-facing slope with good loamy soil. We like to think it is an attractive site, with hedges bordering the grass tracks connecting the plots, numerous trees and an area set aside for wildlife.

We are only too happy to hear from people who would like to rent a plot – if are interested in renting a plot or visiting the site please contact the association secretary Sandra Weightman on Derby 365943.

    Do you think allotmanteers are aware that the government is considering removing local authorities’ statutory duty to provide allotments? Unfortunately, the hardly- publicised consultation period ends in a few days (April 26th 2011). It is the 22nd April today. Anyone reading this may wish to e-mail their MP with views or e-mail the government: burdens@communities.gsi.gov.uk

    Are you planning an open day this year. I moved to the area last year and your open day was fantastic.
    Also, do you know if Rowdich Allotments have a similar open day or site to check on.
    Thanks in advance.
