I have lived in Church Crookham since 1981. My husband, Tony and I are now retired, but busier than ever. We have 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren, who keep us on our toes. My first year as an allotment holder was very successful and I look forward to a good year again.  It’s also nice to meet up with other allotment holders and swap ideas. I have always enjoyed gardening. My father and grandfather were very keen gardeners and I learnt a lot from them.

Howard Holden (Bulk Seed Orders Coordinator) : Plot 81 : Contact for zone south central (SC)
Now a gentleman of leisure after working for the Post Office and teaching at Calthorpe Park School. Used to have an allotment with my Father in Law before moving to Church Crookham in 1983 and probably forgotten all I knew since then! Really looking forward to growing my own produce and seeing the Allotment Society grow into a viable and friendly organisation.

Garry Rickard : Plot 26 : Contact for zone north (N)
I have lived in Fleet since moving here for work in 1995. I have been fascinated by foraging for and growing my own food for many years. I am also obsessed with cooking. You may see me, with the dog, on plot 26. Please come and say hello.

Sally Rowson (Social Events Organiser) : Plot 120 : Contact for zone east (E)
I’m a working mum to 3 small children. I’ve been growing veg and flowers in pots for the last 6 years. I say pots as the family has had to move about every 2 years. So I’m really excited that I’ve been given an allotment and especially a new one. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and sharing our experiences, the highs and hopefully not so many lows.

Andy Theaker (Committee Chairman & Social Events Organiser) : Plot 91 : Contact for zone south (S)
I settled in Church Crookham with my wife and 3 children in 2005. I work for the Department of the Environment, Farming and Rural Affairs where I spend most of my time walking along the banks of the River Kennet in West Berkshire (someone’s got to do it)!  I also enjoy football and golf as well as being an active member of CAMRA.

Nigel Williams : Plot 100 : Contact for zone north west (NW)
I work as an IT manager for a multi-national consultancy and I have lived in Church Crookham for nearly 20 years. I enjoy gardening as a way of relaxing and I’m interested in growing heritage varieties of all plants but particularly those of fruit and vegetables.  Always happy to have a chat and exchange ideas.

Suzanne Lee : Plot 80
I have lived in Fleet and now Church Crookham since 1981. I have always enjoyed growing vegetables since I was a little girl and used to help my Dad at our family allotment. Due to poor mobility I have just downsized to a smaller plot and have been overwhelmed with all the support and kindness shown by other plot holders who all very kindly helped me move. I have recently joined the Church Crookham Allotments Committee in the capacity of supporting any allotment holder with a disability. Including recent or ongoing health issues, maternity and paternity leave and any general concerns they have or are struggling with. I am so glad I downsized rather than have to give up my plot and if you would like to discuss any concerns please find me at Plot 80. Happy growing everyone!
