Coronavirus COVID-19: Advice for Tenants

The City Council appreciates the health and well being benefits that an allotment can bring, therefore our advice is to follow Government guidelines. The advice is changing daily - read the latest guidance

The current guidelines permit you to visit your allotment plot and meet 1 other person from another household who does not live with you, either on your own or with other members of your household or support bubble. You must adhere to hygiene requirements (hand-washing and hand-sanitising) and you must keep a safe distance away from other tenants (a minimum of two metres / six feet if possible).

This excludes anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 or where someone in their household has symptoms, in which case they should be self isolating and should not attend their allotment.

Grow your own!

An allotment is not only a way of growing your own fresh produce, it's also a great way of getting in the fresh air, a good source of exercise, an opportunity to make new friends and good for the environment.

Over the last few years, Worcester City Council has worked in partnership with the Worcester Allotment Forum to provide a high standard of service and an environment where users can enjoy our allotments. As an indication of how endearing allotment gardening can be you only need to look at the number of gardeners with tenancies over 25 years. 

Worcester Allotment Forum now has their own website at Here you will find all the information you need about our allotments. If you wish to apply for a place on one of our waiting lists, please complete the allotment application form.
