What is the Worcester Allotment Forum?
The Worcester Allotment Forum (WAF) works in partnership with Worcester City Council (WCC) to provide a high standard of service and a streamlined process to assist with queries. Tenants on each site elect a Site Representative, who all meet with representatives from WCC on a monthly basis, except for August and December, to discuss items such as: community engagement, upcoming events, site matters, waiting lists and vacancies. There is also an Annual General Meeting, usually held in February each year, which elects an Executive Committee, is open to all tenants on Worcester City Council sites. The Forum abides by the Forum Constitution that was agreed in November 2015.
