Allotments and Gardens Association

Gardening is good for you…

 The aim of our association is to foster an interest in gardening in Comberton .

We hope to achieve this with our Plant Sale in May and an Open Show in September.          
The Show has classes for Vegetables, Fruit , Flowers, Handicrafts, Cookery, Photography, Art and Wine Making.  
The Show Brochure is distributed to all houses in Comberton during  August.

We also hold a Best Kept Allotment competition, the winner is awarded the Watt’s Silver Salver.

Judging alternates between the Long Road and South Street allotment sites; the Long Road plots will be  judged in 2023.

After the Covid disruptions of 2020/21 we were able to return to a full programme of events in  2023; our diary for the year is as follows:-

  • Plant Sale: Sunday 14thMay at 10.30am in the Village Hall
  • Barbecue: Saturday 8th July  at 6pm on the Long Road Allotments.
  • Autumn Show: Saturday 16th September  at 3pm in the  Meridian School.
