The vacant allotment plots have recently been cleared and are waiting to be claimed!  25.00 per plot for the year.  All enquiries to Ann Newton, Parish Clerk

Spring has sprung at last and I have been busy planting my seedlings in the allotment again. This is my third year at the Blackboys allotment and I can honestly say it has been the best thing I have done for a long time. After a stressful day at work in the office I go to the allotment to enjoy the peace and quiet whilst putting my back into some digging.
I grew enough vegetables last year to feed my family and my friends and yes it is hard work but it is worth every minute (and every back ache!)
It was hard work to fence our plots and cover the seedlings and young plants with netting to stop rabbits and pigeons feasting on the fresh young plants but it has paid dividends.
There is a lovely little community at the allotment and always someone to offer a wise word or share plants with (or just to chat to in the sunshine) so why not take on a fresh challenge this year and take on an allotment and start growing your own fresh vegetables and fruit which will taste better than anything you can buy in the shops.
