The Council has 4 allotments sites:

  • Cherry Gardens, off Mount Street
  • Netherfield Hill
  • Watch Oak
  • Virgins Croft at Virgins Lane

The allotments are of varying sizes and current rents are 30p per square metre (24p per square metre at Netherfield Hill). A deposit of £50 or £100 (depending on plot size) is required to secure the agreement. This is refundable if the plot is returned to the Council in a cultivatable condition at the end of the tenancy.

There is currently a waiting list for some sites, if you wish to apply for a plot please contact Jane de Garston, Assistant Town Clerk at the Town Council office. There is also an allotment association.

Each year, the Town Council awards prizes for various categories including the Best Large and Small Allotments, Runner Ups and a Judges’ Special Award.
