Restrictions at Allotments during the Coronavirus crisis

Following the instructions around movement and gatherings from the Prime Minister on 23 March 2020, we are monitoring daily advice from the UK central government. As we understand the situation at the moment it is still permitted to visit your allotment plot, ideally on your own to take daily exercise. Therefore the Eaton Bray allotment sites at The Meads and Holmans Field remain open at present and will remain open unless we are advised otherwise. It is vitally important that you follow all the advice about social distancing and hygiene in the points below:-

Do not gather together in groups on the site. Only family members that live with the tenant can enter the site if the tenant is also present.

Any plot-holder who is self-isolating because either they, or a household member, are ill with corona-virus should NOT be visiting the site.

Please keep your distance from other tenants to help limit the spread of the virus. Follow current government social distancing guidelines and keep at least 2 metres apart from other people.

Do not share tools or any other equipment with other plot holders.


Be careful touching gates, padlocks and other communal assets. Ensure you use hand sanitiser after each use. Do not wash hands in water troughs to avoid contaminating troughs with soap and chemicals. Please stay on your plot at all times whilst at the site and do not enter another plot under any circumstances.

Further advice can be found on the following websites:

Due to the current situation regarding COVID-19 we are not offering out allotment plots until further notice.

Eaton Bray Parish Council will continue to review the situation in line with government advice.
