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 our spring Plant Sale was held on Saturday 14th May at the Church Hall in conjunction with the monthly Acle Farmer's Market. This year our Allotment Association Open Day will be held on 13th August.
We intend to hold a Community Maintenance Morning on 6th August before the Open Day when we will carrying out general site refurbishment and maintenance work.
For the first time in over 2 years we were able to hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in person on 21st February in the Methodist Church Hall. The event was well attended by Members.
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 four people on our waiting list for a plot; one of whom is an Acle residents who, under the terms of our lease, has priority for a future vacant plot.
Regrettably, given the waiting list, the AAA Management Committee have decided that they cannot accept any further requests for allotments from non Acle residents.
