Saintbridge Badger Sett - Information & Guidance
The Association has been contacted by Gloucestershire Constabulary who are responding to a complaint received regarding interference with badger setts on the site.
The police have sent a letter, in the spirit of making us all aware of the ongoing problems on the site and to ask that if anyone has any further information, to please contact and discuss further.

Allotmenting can be extremely rewarding. There is nothing like harvesting your very own fresh and organic produce and bringing it to the dining table within hours. The difference between fruit and vegetables that you have grown yourself and those bought from Supermarkets is amazing. It can also be hard work (but cheaper than a gym!) so you may wish to browse the 'Information' links above to see if allotmenting is right for you.

Our site currently consists of 279 plots of various sizes.
A standard full plot is typically 253m² (10 perch) but is usually sub-divided into two half plots, each approximately 126 m² (5 perch). There are also several smaller plots of 55 to 75 m².

Where are we:

Our site is located in the suburbs of Gloucester, vehicular access is via Cheyney Close off Painswick Road and is adjacent to the lovely Saintbridge Balancing Pond & Wildlife Area.
