Dorking Allotment Holders' Association (DAHA) unites five allotment sites across Dorking, Surrey (see below). For a small annual sum we provide our members with discounted products (such as compost), knowledgeable speakers, a free trip to RHS Wisley, events such as BBQs and quizzes, an annual squash and pumpkin show AND we represent your issues with Mole Valley District Council. Like-minded grow your own addicts in and around Dorking are welcome to join DAHA, whether they have an allotment or not.
With the emergence of the COVID-19 lockdown our allotments are still open to plot holders for daily exercise within the boundaries of social distancing, good hand washing and other safety measures. With some of our older members sheltering at home under government advice, plot inspections by the local council have been postponed for 2020 (there will be plots that seem overgrown as a consequence). However, we have also seen unprecedented demand for plots this year, as a result all five sites now have short waiting lists (which five years ago was not the case). It's still worth joining a list, it just might be a year or so before you are offered a plot.
