The Parish Council’s allotment site in Moormead Road contains over 170 plots of varying sizes, the most common being approx. 125 sq metres (5 perch). Annual rent is currently £5.50 per 25 sq metres (1 perch).
In addition to the obvious benefits of growing your own flowers, fruit and vegetables, having an allotment can also provide a sense of achievement and well-being, along with the chance to learn new skills.
It can be great fun for all the family, providing fresh air and exercise. Allotments can also help protect the environment and generate community spirit, offering an opportunity to meet people from all walks of life.
