Welcome to WAGA website!
This is the website for the Wivenhoe Allotment and Garden Association (WAGA). Here you can find out how to apply, check for upcoming events and read newsletters.
Wivenhoe Allotment and Gardens Association is a thriving society but we are always keen to have new members, you do not have to have an allotment to join. Our trading hut is open to members every Sunday morning 10 – 12 (except December). Both allotment holders and garden members can benefit from very competitive prices for seeds, compost, fertilisers, ground cover, netting, fence posts and many other products. Equipment such as mowers and strimmers (with goggles) are available to borrow in return for a donation.
Our committee meetings are held monthly, new members are very welcome to attend. Members are also very welcome to volunteer for jobs involved in the allotment community.
WAGA, the Allotments & Gardens Association, as an affiliated RHS member get a copy of the Banksian Medal to award at our annual Show to the person who gains the most points in the horticultural classes. This year, as all Shows have been cancelled, the RHS declared that we should award it instead to someone in our community who has gone the extra mile to help our community.
At our meeting in September, the Committee unanimously decided to award this Medal collectively to ALL the volunteers who make up the Wivenhoe in Bloom group. We know how hard they all work to enhance Wivenhoe with many flower beds around the town which gives pleasure to lots of people. We wanted to recognise this work and to say thank you to them ALL for what they do.
