What is the Partnership?
Ealing Allotments Partnership is a community-led group with an elected management team, working with the council on behalf of all allotment tenants in the borough. Using its independent status, the Partnership can apply for grants to develop and improve allotment facilities; support and encourage local community involvement on allotments through helping gardeners to improve their own sites and in addition the most crucial objective of the Partnership, is to maintain and develop Ealing's Sustainable Allotment Strategy ensuring a positive and safe future for allotments in Ealing.
All tenants of Ealing allotment sites are automatically members of the Partnership. Whether you are simply interested in improving your own plot; or working on a project at your site, the Partnership is here to help you. If you have a broader interest, you might want to join the Executive Committee and turn your expertise to the support of allotments generally and you are certainly encouraged to come to the annual meeting where you will find a welcome from people across the borough, each with ideas on some aspect of allotmenteering.
Officers for 2016-17
Chair: Joseph Mangar (Horsenden; Whitton Place)
Treasurer: Simon Higginson (High Lane)
Secretary: John Bradley (Blondin)
Site Managers meeting, 25 April 2017
As a follow up from our last meeting in September, I would like to invite site managers to another Allotment Management meeting to update you on a few items in advance of the fast approaching inspection season.
As with the previous meetings, we will host it at Perceval House (please come to staff reception) on Tuesday 25th April, 2017 starting promptly at 7:00pm. For any sites being managed under local management, please try and limit attendance to 2 people.
If you are unable to attend, please feel free to arrange someone else to attend on your behalf.
Look forward to seeing you all again.

Ealing in Bloom
The time for submitting your entry to the annual Ealing-in-Bloom competition has come around again. As usual there are four categories:
- Large allotment Site (over 50 plots)
- Small allotment Site (50 or less plots)
- Large allotment plot (over 7.5 poles)
- Small allotment plot (7.5 poles or less)
Apart from the fact that it’s fun, why bother to enter? At the site level, it encourages plot holders to feel part of a community; it also focuses attention on how well the site is doing – not unimportant in light of the current threat to the Northfields site. At the individual plot level, it can give you a sense of fulfilment regarding how well your plot is being utilised.
Click on entry form to access a copy. Two important things to remember are that the closing date for allotment entries is the 12th May (earlier than other categories) and that entries under the individual plot category must be made by the plot holder - not the site manager.
