Parish Council Allotment News
This is a new page on the Parish Council website to update Allotment Holders on news and dates for allotment activities.
An allotment holders working group has been set up to allocate allotments to new tenants. The group also offers assistance to allotment holders who may require temporary assistance due to illness. The group meets regularly to discuss allotment matters in terms of improvements and communication between allotment holders and the Parish Council office.
Notice boards have been erected on the Paradise Allotment sites on the gates at the Wilford Road entrance to keep allotment holders informed and also about events that are planned. There are also post boxes for allotment holders to pass on concerns and suggestions.
Membership of the Group is as follows:-
Jean Allen, Nick Beadle, Mandy Fletcher, Sheena Gibbons, Ange Goodman, Wayne Harris, Carol Jaggers, and Arthur and Hilda Simpson.
We are looking for new allotment holders there are spaces available please contact the Parish Council by phone 0115 9146660 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
