Whetstone Stray



Welcome to Whetstone Stray Allotments

We have a west-facing site with tranquil rural atmosphere, alongside Whetstone Stray meadows. In use since the first world war, there are 140 plots, with primarily rich clay soil. There are no plots available at present.  If you want to go on the Waiting List, please contact our Lettings overseer (lettings@whetstoneallotments.co.uk; or mobile: 07546279631).  Rents are reviewed in October, and people on the Waiting List will be contacted between October and December. 

August 2013 Newsletter

Three Dates to note:

Bonfires allowed on Wednesday 7th August

This is the only day bonfires are allowed this month, so let's hope it isn't raining!  

Annual Barbecue and Picnic on 25th August

The Annual Barbecue and picnic will be held on 25th August from 1-3pm, on the main car parking area near the Trading Hut.

This is a chance to relax after all your hard work, meet fellow plot holders, enjoy good food, and have some fun.

The barbecue will be set up, bring food to cook, friends and family.

Annual Show will be on Sunday 1st September

Here is the Annual Show Guide and the Application Form for your entries to the show.  Copies of the application form will also be available from the Trading Hut.

Complete one form per person, and either hand it in when the hut is open (10-12 on Sundays), or post it to:

Georg Brueggl
12 Cardrew Avenue
London N12 9LD
Alternatively you can email your entry information (without using the form) to gbrueggl@yahoo.co.uk

Application Forms/emails must arrive by Wednesday 28 August.

Compost Delivery

This arrived on Wednesday 31st July.  There is still about a third of it left at the time of writing.  

Volunteer Day

There has been a request that the next Volunteer Day will be to cut back along the roadway down to Field 3.  If the plotholders in this area of the site would like to get in touch with Les Moore, to arrange a convenient date, we can make this happen.

Les can be contacted on: 07957 388033

Special offer on Chicken Manure Pallets

The Shop is reducing large bags of palleted chicken manure from £9.50 to £9.00. This is a super deal, in time for Autumn. Chicken manure pallets can be used to feed your plot after a long growing season.  It also makes a good compost activator/ additive and can be made into a liquid feed as well.


Following Barnet Council's survey and risk assessment, they have informed us that the asbestos on site is not dangerous to handle. &nbs
