Welcome to the Moor Pool Allotment Association website. The allotments are an intrinsic part of the historic Moor Pool garden suburb founded by John Sutton Nettlefold. The Association is here to represent the interests of its Members and ensure the maximum use of the allotments in an appropriate manner.

Our Members will be guardians of an important aspect of Britains social history. That carries responsibilities beyond self interest of having and managing an allotment. Future visitors to Moor Pool will be looking at the allotments in the context of the history of the garden suburb movement. Moor Pool with the number of allotments it retains is an exemplary example which should promote both the interests of the allotment association but the Moor Pool Heritage Trust as it seeks ways to fund and maintain the Estate in the future.

We have what we have in the way of allotments, because residents fought a heated battle in 2006-2009 to save them. Many could have been built upon. We now have a responsibility to ensure that having saved the majority, we bring them back into use, respect and look after them.

Allotments Meeting
Saturday 4th November
10.30am Lower Moor Pool Hall
We are holding a meeting to discuss whether there is sufficient interest to continue the allotment association. I believe its important that there is an association not only to look after the interests of members but to also support the increased use of the allotments and restoration work by the Trust.
Do come along and show your support.

Rob Sutton.

You can do it too!
