Useful Contacts:

The three allotment sites, Scarcroft, Hospital Fields and Hob Moor are managed by York Allotments Charitable Interest Organisation - YACIO.  If you want to join one of the waiting lists, or give up or divide your plot, please go to YACIO's website and follow the links to the Allotment Finder page

The waiting list of each allotment site is managed by the Site Secretary, who is also there for tenants to raise any problems they may have with their plot. As with all allotment sites in the city, there are currently waiting lists on all 3 sites.

The local community police are actively supporting our allotment sites and there are regular patrols in the area.  If you see suspicious behaviour or encounter non-emergency problems on the allotments such as criminal damage found, people causing a minor nuisance, contact the police on 101.
In case of an emergency such as threatening behaviour, someone in the act of breaking into or setting fire to a shed, phone 999.
