We are not closing parks at this stage as we are mindful of the health and well-being benefits of being outside. However, you must rigidly observe the Government and NHS advice on social distancing such as keeping 2 metres away from other people. Play areas, tennis courts and outdoor gyms should not be used at this time. People who need to stay at home and self-isolate must do so. If the guidance is not followed this position on parks and open spaces will be reviewed.

Arts service changes

Havering Music School and Fairkytes Arts Centre are closed. The pre-school on the Fairkytes site is open on in line with government guidance on schools. Our arts and sports events and activity programmes are all cancelled.

Library closures

All Havering libraries are closed. Read more

Leisure centres are closed

Given the directive from government, the centres will no longer open.


Do you have an interest in gardening? If so renting an allotment could be a rewarding experience. 

What better way can there be to exercise and unwind after a busy day than spending a few hours gardening in the fresh air knowing that your reward will be your own freshly-grown produce.​​​

Listed below are the names and addresses of the allotment sites that are spread throughout Havering. 

For a small annual charge you can rent a standard size plot (ie approximately 280 square metres). There is also a small charge made by the Allotment Society at each site.  

For details of availability please contact individual sites.
