A self managed allotment association

line decor



As an association we have an active group of committee members working together with plot holders to maintain and generally improve our site.  The size of new plots has been reduced, giving more people from our waiting list to opportunity to become ‘allotmenteers’.

One of our members has, with general agreement sited 2 bee hives on his plot.  This has resulted in excellent pollination for all our flowering fruit and vegetables.  We also benefit from some very locally produced honey.  Other members have placed bird boxes around the site and many sunflowers are grown to benefit the birds.


A Members Show and Open Day for the public is held annually when all are welcome to visit our site and join in the fun.

Friends of Kinson Common

Friends of Kinson Common

Since their formation in 1999, the Friends have helped Bournemouth Borough Council's Countryside Officers manage Kinson Common, a Local Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest, as Countryside Volunteers. We are also associate members of the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers.

Litter-picking, wildlife recording and monitoring the site for anti-social behaviour such as arson are part of our work as well as liaising with residents and visitors about any problems that may occur on site. We have also placed bird and bat boxes around the site and are also undertaking surveys of fungi and moths as well as planning other projects for future records. In our Autumn/Winter work programme jobs such as scrub and gorse clearance are carried out.
