The Town Council has two allotment sites, one at the Cemetery and one just off The Graftons. Currently there is a waiting list for an allotment. If you would like to add your name to the waiting list please contact the Town Council office. Currently the yearly fee for an allotment at the Cemetery is £12. The yearly rate from the 1st April 2017 for an allotment at The Graftons is £15.
The lower half of the Graftons allotment site is prone to flooding in the winter, so some of the plots are designated as ‘summer plots’. Plot holders with summer plots remain on the waiting list for better locations as they come up.
The Council is in the process of acquiring new land for allotments. This has been prompted by the shortage of space for graves in the Cemetery which means that the current allotment site will need to be turned over to burial land within the next few years. The new site is likely to be at Tunnel Hill.
