Welcome to Horspath Village

Horspath Village Allotments Project

Setting up an Allotment Association

Because of the problems involved in reclaiming the site for allotment use, we need to form a legally constituted community group or allotment association. Below are various documents which we will find helpful in forming our group. Will members of the allotments group please read them as you will need to have an overview when we hold our meeting to set up the association. The documents are all in PDF format, so you can read them on-line or download them. If you have any comments, please send them to webmaster@horspath.org.uk.
