Worcester Allotment Forum – Introduction

What is the Worcester Allotment Forum?

The Worcester Allotment Forum (WAF) works with Worcester City Council (WCC) to provide a high standard of service and an efficient process to deal with queries, and any issues which arise.

Tenants on each site elect a Site Representative, who have the opportunity to meet with representatives from WCC on a monthly basis (except for August and December) to discuss the issues of the day, including our policies & procedures, site matters, waiting lists and vacancies, community engagement, and upcoming events.

The Annual General Meeting, at which all Tenants on the Worcester City Council managed allotment sites are welcome, is usually held in February each year, and elects the Forum’s Officers.

The Forum abides by the Forum Constitution that was updated and agreed in January 2018.
