Whetstone Stray Allotment Survey of Plotholders
Whetstone Stray is a self-managing plot.
Since 2014 we have had a lease from Barnet Council and it is the responsibility of all plotholders to help to administer, maintain and improve the site.
We'd like to hear from all our members to gather your thoughts and ideas about how we collectively run the allotments. This will help us make better decisions to benefit all our members - so we can continue to enjoy Whetstone Stray the way we want to.
We hope that by encouraging more plotholders to get involved with communal tasks and events we will not only share the work more fairly but we will create an even better allotment site with a vibrant social calendar of events
Please enter your email address so we can get in contact with you and share the results of this survey.
Everyone who looks after the plot should complete a survey so we get a full picture of your interests and talents.
Your email will NOT be shared with anyone else.
Submit your survey by 28 February 2018 to be entered in a prize draw to win a wheelbarrow worth £29.99.
You don't need to send it anywhere , juest submit it when you have completed it. Paper forms will be sent to plotholders without emails.

Keeping in Touch
Plotholders need to know what is going on, especially when there is an emergency, such as a problem with the lock on the gate or a serious crime.
Members are kept informed mainly through email, newsletters, facebook group, word of mouth, posters on the gate and by attending committee meetings and the AGM.
Keeping your contact details up to date is part of your lease agreement. Please tell us how you would like to receive information about Whetstone Stray.
Please indicate how you would like to receive information (tick all that apply)
Notices on Gate
There are many ways you can help on the site, suiting all kinds of physical (and intellectual) abilities.
You won’t be left to struggle on your own and it’s a great way to meet other plotholders.
Do you feel you already contribute to the running and maintenance of Whetstone Stray Allotments? If so, what do you do?
The trading hut sells allotment supplies such as manure, compost, weed suppressant sheeting, bamboo canes and slug pellets (for a full list of stock visit
The hut is open for one hour from 11am to 12 noon on Sunday mornings in Spring and Summer, and needs two people to staff it.

There is a vineyard plot among our allotments that is now unmanaged so there is a great opportunity to get involved with a small group to look after this as a communal plot.
Q. Are you interested in this opportunity to share in the management (and fruits) of the communal vineyard?
