Allotment plot signs launched

Demand for allotments and splitting of plots has lead to confusion with many plots not being numbered or marked in a logical pattern, leading to metal product manufacturer Gingerwick launching signs to help identify sites.

Owner Mike Crawley said: "The idea came about as allotment holders at the site I'm part of were recently asked to pay their yearly fees via bank transfer. We were told to use our plot numbers as a reference so they could be matched with the payments. It soon became apparent that a large majority of members hadn't a clue what their number was and most plots weren't marked or even followed a numbering pattern due to the site expanding over the years.

"Using the Gingerwick numbering signs all plots can be quickly and easily identified in a uniform manner promoting a tidy site image, helping create accurate records and less confusion."

The signs each measure 7.5cm x 7.5cm and are made from aluminium plate with a white background finish. The corners have pre-drilled holes and fixing screws are included in each pack.

Associations can specify their own requirements such as wording, logos, and numbering which are then heat pressed making the signs weatherproof.

They come individually packaged in grip-lock bags for ease of distribution to the plot holders.

Priced at £3.00 each, minimum order of 10, orders of 50 or more are sent post free.
