🔐 Key Exchange Weekend – 12th & 13th November

On the weekend of the 12th/13th November the Society will be changing the locks on all of the gates on both the Bert Road and Lion Road Sites.  

This is to increase our overall security in light of the large number of former plot holders who having ceased to be members of the Society have failed to return their keys. This change will not require any additional key deposit money from plot holders.

Please note the sequence of planned events and instructions below to ensure this key exchange goes smoothly.

No plot holder should attend their plot on the morning of Saturday 12th November.

Saturday 12th November – 9:00am to 11:00am all the locks will be changed.

Saturday 12th November – 11:00am to 3:00pm – the key exchange will take place.

All plot holders who wish to continue to access the site will need to attend the Site Office on the Lion Road site between 11:00 am and 3:00pm – the Lion Road Gate will be open to allow plot holders to do this – bringing with them:

  • 🔑 Their existing/old key(s)
  • 🆔 Photographic ID
  • 💳 2022/23 Society Membership Card.

Sunday 13th November – 10:00am to 1:00pm – a second key exchange session will take place for those plot holders who could not attend on Saturday 12th (the above conditions will apply).

Subsequently any society members who have not exchanged their key will not be able to access the allotments sites after Saturday 12th November, until they have done so.

For those plot holders who cannot attend either key exchange session held on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th November further key exchange session will be held on the following 3 weekends and details and times of these sessions will be notified to members once they have been arranged (the above conditions will apply).
