    Default How much does your plot cost?

    How much and how do they broken down?
    Discounts for oaps? Membership charges?

    Think it's about 25 (about that anyway) for a full plot. No breakdown but I think OAPs etc get a discount (possibly as much as 50%). We don't have a committee so no extra payments there and there are no options on the site that you can opt in or out of. Nice and simple. You do have to pay a non returnable payment for admin when you first take on your plot but that's not that much as I remember.

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    17 for a half plot. Water included.....not that I used much last year.......3 extra for society membership which includes insurance.

    Oaps get a 50% reduction in fees. Not for membership though!

    What about yours?

    37 quid for a full plot , all water and free storage. I think there are discounts for people on low wages/ unemployed/oap.
    We get periodic free deliveries of woodchip and there are tools such as a strimmer/ chipper etc to hire.

    I'd rather be a comma than a full stop.

    Ours are 37 for a full plot, nothing is included in that except the plot; no water, no loos, no community building, no shared equipment, nada. No discounts for anybody, even if the plot is unusable when you take it on...

    6.25 for a half plot, 12.50 for a full plot, includes water rates.

    No discounts, and no facilities - though they're talking about getting a compobog type thing on, and are expanding the "shed" out to make it secure due to break ins.

    edit: NSALG Membership included too, "secure" site. Members sort out manure/compost/woodchips.
