Watery Lane Allotment & Leisure Garden Association

Our Association, formed 2009, works in partnership with Codsall Parish Council who own and administer Watery Lane Allotment & Leisure Gardens. The aim of the association is to promote the interests of all members in their gardening activities and to conduct negotiations as necessary to improve the facilities at the site.

  • Annual BBQ 2018

    Another successful  annual BBQ well attended and some useful funds raised for the assocciation.  Hopefully some photos will follow.


  • Green Flag

    Our application was accepted and this year we were subject of a "mystery shopper" inspection.  We passed and have been awarded the Green Flag award for the fourth year running.  We should be getting a 2018 flag.


  • Program for raised beds

    The first of the raised beds has been completed and can be seen in the photos in the right hand side panel.  The committee hopes to push on with the next bed over the coming year.


  • Plot Inspections

    The first plot inspections are ongoing and resulting in several holders deciding to give up their plots.


  • Polytunnel

    Although the Polytunnel looks full at the moment,  if you need some space, please ask Dennis and I'm sure he will find an area for you. However, we do have to be some guidelines on use, so please adhere to the following:
     
    Use restricted to members of the Association.
    Should only to be used for;
                    Propagation in pots or trays
                    Overwintering in pots or trays
                    Plants growing in pots or trays               
                    Small plants like tomatoes or peppers OK               
                    Wiry Plants like cucumbers No!
                    Large shrubs No!

    Please try to keep your plants together in an area on the ample bench space and ensure they are clearly labelled and identified with your name or plot number. In such a confined space, disease control is important to stop spread to other holder’s plants.  As the area is to be shared by all members, please avoid being too greedy with the space. Also members retain responsibility for watering their own plants.

    Anyone using the facility does so at their own risk as neither the association nor the Parish Council can accept responsibility for any loss or damage.
