The allotments located in Crowcastle Lane are managed on behalf of the Parish Council by a committee of 6 members comprising:
3 committee members
The officers are elected for an indefinite period whilst the committee members serve for 3 years only.
The operational year runs from March to February with the Annual General Meeting held in early March. Committee meetings are held on an as required basis.
Originally there were 32 full plots of approximately 10 pole each but for practical purposes allotments are now available to members as either full, half or quarter size plots at annual rents of:
Full plot £6.00
Half . £3.00
It has been possible to keep rents low compared to other societies in the area, but the committee does examine the situation annually in the light of expected financial outlay.
The society is continuing to thrive with most plots in a good state of cultivation including the surrounding areas being maintained by volunteers. One new change is the number of allotments
held by ladies now. For many years there was a waiting list for allotments but currently, unusually, there are 5 half plots vacant which are available on a first come basis. Any interested parties should contact either of the following urgently:
