ACLE ALLOTMENT ASSOCIATION (AAA)
The Acle Allotment Association (AAA) site is located just off Boat Dyke Lane, opposite the Hermitage restaurant. It incorporates 40 allotment plots of varying size plus two communal sheds, a WC and picnic area. There is a small hardstanding car park, to the left, just inside the main entrance and a larger grass car park to the right of the gate.
The Management Committee is made up of at least 5 association members plus 3 Officers all of whom are appointed during our AGM.
Each year our association holds an Open day when we offer people the opportunity to look round our allotment site. We also organise fundraising activities such as produce and cake sales, tea stall and a raffle. The monies raised not only help to keep the plot rents down but also cover the cost of essential site maintenance activities.
This year we held our Open Day, on 17th August. Unfortunately attendance was down a little on last year but the support shown by the local community was much appreciated.
We have added a community seed swapping website to our links page.
Our annual plot rents are due by 13th October; letters have been sent to individual Members inviting them to renew their tenancies.
Our next Management Committee meeting will be held on 19th November.
Our next AGM will be held on 17 February 2020 in the Acle Methodist Church rooms.
Our association's annual BBQ offers members and their families an opportunity to meet socially . The event normally takes place in July and in recent years we have fortunate with dry weather, let's hope it continues!
We currently have no vacant allotments and there are two Acle resident and one non resident on our waiting list for a plot.
