Welcome to the
Black Bull Allotment Association
If you wish to contact B.B.A.A. for any reason, then please use the feedback form (see link on left) giving all necessary details.
There is also a FACEBOOK page,only recently set up, and very much a work in progress. Please post any allotment photographs and/or comments for the benefit of fellow allotment holders. This is NOT a BBAA page, but one set up by Colin Smith on Plot 70.
GENERAL DETAILS ON B.B.A.A.
Our Association has been in existence since the 1920s, and is a privately run allotment group of approximately 80+ allotments. The allotments are off Downs Road, and just behind the Black Bull public house (now The Hungry Horse).
If you need to contact the Committee, then please use the FEEDBACK form on this website. The link to this is on the left hand side.
WHY HAVE AN ALLOTMENT ?
An allotment will enable you to grow fresh organic vegetables and fruit, and flowers of your choice, and harvest, fresh, straight from the plant.
Allotments are a very good way of raising awareness about the environment and are a great place for children to learn about ‘green’ issues.
Allotments are a valuable source of recreation and entertainment for people of all ages from all walks of life.
An allotment is good for your physical health and mental well-being. Gardening is very therapeutic and is available to able bodied and disabled people.
Allotment gardening is FUN!
Applications are invited from anyone interested in taking on an allotment as part of the Black Bull Allotment Association, which are situated off Downs Road (behind the Black Bull PH).
Preference will be given to those living locally, in postcode areas CT19 and CT20, and who are able to give an undertaking to give the allotment the care and attention needed throughout the whole year.
There will soon be a new list of Committee members published.
Please use the feedback form on this website if you are interested in having an allotment, or wish to pass a comment on to the Committee.
Please include your name and full address (preference is given to those living locally) and contact details, including telephone number and email address where used.
If you need to discuss any issue regarding your own plot, then please contact Phil Cole or another Committee Member, in strictest confidence
