Gardeners and Allotment Association

 

The Siddington allotments are one of those very special places where you find the postmistress alongside the local yoga instructor, the painter-decorator weeding next to the artist, each person working the earth and connected by a common passion for gardening, fresh air and harvesting home-grown produce. Pale stone cottages frame the rectangular site, both the geographical and spiritual heart of our Cotswold community.

 

Siddington Gardeners & Allotment Association is a friendly bunch of gardeners and plot holders with a passion for gardening. Join in the fun, meet other gardeners, and learn more about gardening. This new generation of gardeners is reducing its carbon footprint, getting healthy exercise in the fresh air, and growing wonderfully tasty (often organic) fruit and vegetables. The dynamic social calendar includes an annual plant sale; the Village Grow and Show; talks on everything from orchids to bugs and compost; tidy days with tea and cakes; flower arranging at Easter and Christmas; allotment week; and get-togethers at the pub when seasoned members share hot tips and gardening advice.

 

Siddington Allotments have been around for over a hundred years. They belong to a land owner who lives in Cirencester. There are 24 plots, with 40 people working them. Water supplies have always come from the nearby brook. Over the years, some most ingenious ways of collecting water have been invented - it's surprising what can be made into a water catcher!

 

Forthcoming events

 

Summer Garden Party, Sunday 4th June, 3-5pm at The Coach House, Fraziers Folly

Our next event is in aid of The Grow and Show. £4 on the door to include full cream tea and music. Kids free. Vintage English songs from Erin Hughes at 4pm. Maggot racing for all. Raffle with great prizes. Please remember to bring a chair and a mug. Get the invitation here.

 

Siddington Grow and Show, Sunday 3rd September, 2-4pm, in the Village Hall

After the unfortunate cancellation of last year’s show, plans are now developing for this year. If you are interested in joining a small committee to help, please contact Graham on 07793 737268.

 

There will be a range of fruit and vegetable classes, some arts and craft classes, teas and cakes, and some entertainment stalls. 


If you still have one of the trophies from 2015, please get it engraved with your details and be ready to return it to us in the summer.
