Our Association

The Marlow Town Council managed allotment sites in Marlow are: Foxes Piece and Hanging Hill.

The Marlow Allotments Association was established in 1983 as a response to a proposal to sell off the Hanging Hill site for housing. With the help & support from the National Society for Allotment & Leisure Gardeners (NSALG), the Association was successful in preventing the loss of this valuable site - we remain vigilant.

It is vital that the Association has high membership enrolments each year, in the event of a threat to either site this will demonstrate that we consistently have the support of the majority of tenants from both sites. This will then send a powerful signal to those who may doubt our resolve  – THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS!!

A membership form is attached & for a small annual fee, in addition to supporting the Allotment Sites, members will also benefit from the Seeds Scheme, discount at Hunts Hardware Store in Station Road plus reduced prices for Chicken Manure Pellets.

The Committee

Association Committee Members are all volunteers who have their own plots on either of the sites at Foxes Piece or Hanging Hill. This means that all tenants are able talk to someone who knows the other tenants and who understands the local site conditions.

 

Due to this close link with tenants of both sites, Marlow Town Council is able to rely on help from the committee to support & advise them.

 

Committee Members can be contacted from the attached email link or from the contact details on the latest Newsletter.

 

The Committee meets approximately five times a year to consider issues raised and to take joint action, where this is judged to be in the best interest of all members & tenants.

 

Throughout the year the Committee arranges events, which give the tenants of both sites a chance to meet each other and to share food and drink. Also, talks and demonstrations are arranged that are of interest to allotment gardeners.
Foxes Piece

This site is located near the town centre, next to the doctors' surgery, and backs onto the school of the same name. The plots are in a large flat site surrounded on most sides by residential areas.

 

People use their plots to grow a wide range of fruit, vegetables and some flowers.  It does require some hard work and dedication to get the best results from your plot, but everyone agrees that the end result is the satisfaction of growing fresh produce that is usually a much better flavour.

Hanging Hill

This site is situated near St Peters Roman Catholic School on the outskirts of Marlow. As the name states most of the plots are on a hillside with spectacular views over Marlow.

To be able to sit on your plot as the dusk approaches, looking out over the views, with only the sound of a sausage or two sizzling on a small barbecue is pure bliss.

As this site is slightly larger, there is vehicle access & some car parking areas, which helps with the fetching & carrying of equipment & crop gathering.
