Welcome to the Vectis Road Allotments Association, affectionately known as VERA to it's members.


Situated in the heart of historic East Cowes, the VERA allotments offer fun, friendship, peace, tranquility and, if you're prepared to make the effort, the opportunity to grow and eat your own, fantastic veg.

Maintaining an allotment isn't easy but it is intensely satisfying. Add to that the companionship of some of the best folk you'll ever meet, and you have a recipe that enhances your life more than you might expect. It doesn't get much better than that.
