We did it again!
BEAS has been awarded Bournemouth's
'Best Allotment Site Award 2018'
Thank you and well done to all for helping to make our site a great place to be.It was great to pick up the cup again - for the 3rd year- and one of our plot holders, Paul Duffy, won best overall plot so that was a great accolade for our site and our society.
Bournemouth East Allotment Society have two adjacent sites that are divided into a total 104 plots. Many of the plots are also sub-divided into 'half' and 'mini' plots.
New applicants will be offered a half or mini plot in the first instance.
These are often more readily available and easier to manage for first-timers who wish to start the rewarding hobby of allotment keeping.
We also have six 'wheelchair friendly' accessible raised beds.
There is a waiting list. If you fill in an application form you will be put on the waiting list for the next available plot. You will be invited to a new members meeting when you get near the top of the list and are likely to be ofered a plot soon. At this meeting you can find out all about becoming an alotmenteer.
Meet the BEAS Committee
Our volunteer team
A warm welcome from our Chair, Linda Taylor.
Bournemouth East Allotment Association (BEAS) is a self-managed site. The land is owned by Bournemouth Borough Council but, within the terms of our lease, we can run our own site. This does take a lot of work and is managed by a team of volunteers who are voted in as ‘The Committee’ at the annual general meeting.
This year (2018-19) we are a team of 10, all allocated different roles, to help and support plot holders and make sure the allotment site is well maintained, safe and an enjoyable place for everyone.
