The Council now 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 26p per square metre (21p 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 but if you wish to apply for a plot please contact Jane de Garston, Assistant Town Clerk at the Town Council office.

Each year, the Town Council awards prizes for the Best Kept and Most Improved allotments. There is also an allotment association.
