We hope you'll find our SPONSORS page informative and helpful, and that they become your first "port of call" when looking for ANYTHING to do with your allotment or garden.




We are very careful in our selection of SPONSORS.


Each LOCAL SPONSOR or SUPPORTER from wider afield will have done business with us at an elementary level.


As a "not for profit" allotment Trust we do not accept payment in money from any of the individuals or companies displayed here.


Rather, each SPONSOR or SUPPORTER will have provided our Trust with a payment "in kind" based on what they supply. Unless those products or services are up to a standard that we can endorse then their info. panel will not be displayed on this page.

Lower down on this page there are also LINKS to other web-sites.

The links are either a swapped link with us or a free link to a web-site that we consider to be of interest to our web-site visitors.

Allotment Group



Are you thinking of setting-up an allotment gardening group within your local community?

Have you RECENTLY set-up an allotment group in your area, but now you're not sure of what's required of your committee as your membership starts to grow?

you're a bit nervous about how to proceed correctly and legally? Who is going to sit down to write a proper constitution for your group? Who has enough experience of the Law to draft a legally robust tenancy agreement document for your plot-holders?

what you have at present is not fit for purpose. Are you sure you have the correct documentation in place?
You should minimally have a proper - legally binding - CONSTITUTION document along with or including your group's Rules and Regulations, and most importantly your Plot-holder's TENANCY AGREEMENT documents in place.
Many allotment groups who run their associations or societies in a proper and professional manner also have a Members HAND-BOOK printed for all their Plot-holding members.

I joined my first allotment gardening group way back in 1976 - as an enthusiastic twenty one year old - with a young family. At the time I was living and working as an electronics engineer in Cwmbran, Gwent.

Many years later (and with quite a few allotment groups under my belt), I have (with the help of some of the best officials available from my previous allotment association in Aberaeron), set-up a charity allotment group -

Ymddiriedolaeth Rhandiroedd Dyffryn Aeron/ Aeron Vale Allotments Trust.

You pick-up an awful lot of experience over nearly forty years of allotment gardening!

One of my favourite quotes is:

"Gardening Knowledge unshared is knowledge wasted".

For that one simple reason alone, I have built this web-site so that fellow allotmenteers can freely gain knowledge, tips and advice from it.

However, as a charity set-up to help allotment gardeners and to provide for the aged, infirm and those in need of food welfare in our communities we are prepared to go much further than that, by offering any potential allotment groups a


for their new (or existing) allotment groups where the officials may not be quite up to running speed when it comes to proper and legally binding documentation for their allotment gardening association, society or club requirements.
