I will invite you sometime during the summer hols. We have two reasonably sized plots though the young gardeners seem to have opted for strawberries to the exclusion of much else. So one week of strawberry glut and now nothing.
My friend has an allotment off Lorn Road in Stockwell (Lambeth) There are also some near Vauxhall City Farm.
I read this thread with interest as I would very much like to put my name down for an allotment, or a share of the allotment. I have written to Bermondsey and Rotherhithe Horticulturaly Society but I am guessing from your messages in this thread that I will probably not get a reply.
My nearest allotments are the ones on St James' Road in SE16. Did anyone manage to get hold of anyone that ran these allotments?
There are some off of HAYLES STREET behind ST GEORGES ROAD. I put my name on a waiting list but was told that it might take three years - That was about three years ago and I have never heard anything more. I no longer have the relevant phone number to see if there is ever any hope of even getting a half share. Anyone know who the contact is?
Has there been any more info on allotments in the SE1 area since these postings? I am having to give up a veg garden and my chickens to move 'down south' next month and I'm sure I'll be suffering withdrawal very quickly!
I have one of the allotments in St James's Road/Lynton Road SE16 and know there was a waiting list at the start of the year. A smaller allotment area was set recently aside at Paterson Park since the previous allotment in that area was taken over for the City Academy but think most of those were allocated from the waiting list. I don't the wait for the allotment coming under Bermondsey & Rotherhithe Hort. Soc. is too long and it's worth persisting if St James' Road/Paterson Park is near you.
If you haven't had a response, let me know and I'll post the contact name.
