As you may have noticed, the padlock on the gate has broken once again and is to be replaced with a new, more robust, one on Saturday 17th May.
The combination will remain the same for now, but the lock itself is different and you will need to learn how to use it.
Below is a step by step guide .
Step 1 Enter combination

Leeds Allotments Federation had to postpone its Annual General Meeting (originally planned for Tuesday 23rd March 2021) because of Covid restrictions and after considering the alternatives, it has been decided that LAF will hold the AGM via the Zoom application which has been used by many groups during the last year.
In order to give as many members as possible a chance to attend this virtual AGM, the Federation has asked that we send this information on to our plot holders.
The new date for the AGM is Wednesday 14th April 2021 at 7.30pm.
Just click on the link below and then on Launch Meeting and then wait till Joe lets you in.
Through Froglife’s ‘Yorkshire T.O.A.D. (Tales of Amphibian Discovery)’ project we are engaging with allotment holders to improve their spaces for wildlife, and particularly amphibians.
The workshop will show people how to improve allotments for wildlife, and specifically toads, through mutually beneficial ways that will improve crop production and pest control. The project is funded by Heritage Lottery.
There is no limit on the people who can join so the more the merrier.
We have a couple of plots that have been vacated and we will be inviting those on the top of the waiting list to view them in the next week or so.
The current waiting list is large as you can imagine, but we will continue to add people to it as and when they request us to do so. Although the list remains open, anyone joining it now can expect a lengthy wait of up to five years.
The ShareWaste scheme originated in Australia but has become worldwide and connects people who wish to recycle their kitchen scraps with their neighbours who are already composting, worm-farming or keep chickens.
Now you can divert waste from landfill while getting to know the people around you!
