Allotments Update

Supply & Demand

Demand for allotments continues to grow and there is now a waiting list of about sixteen. We are hopeful of meeting this demand before the new growing season starts as several lettings are not being renewed, fully or in part, when rents are paid in February. One such plot holder is Stan Rideout, well known to many of us in the village, who has had a fall and is in hospital. We wish him a speedy recovery.

As plots do become available they will only be let in 5 rod lots which should help increase supply. Also those from outside the village will be given low priority until the list is cleared.


We hope residents, especially those near the site, will appreciate that we will do our best to minimise any nuisance caused by smoke and as such continue to reinforce the guidelines we give to plot holders. The dates for the coming year have been agreed and are as follows:

  • 2nd March (16:00 – 19:00)
  • 6th April, 5th May (Tues), 1st June, 6th July, 3rd August, 7th September,
  • 5th October
  • 2nd November (16:00 – 19:00)

All are on a Monday evening and from 17:00 to 20:00 unless stated otherwise.  These time intervals are for plot holders to add material to a fire but it must be appreciated that the bonfires will in fact take longer than this to burn out.
