Following regular requests from allotment holders, water is now on tap at Coddenham’s allotments. With materials bought using monies from the allotment reserves, Cllr Donald Burton built two rain-sourced water storage butts, which were erected earlier this week.
14 allotment plots are owned by the parish council on land between Love Lane and Broom Hill in the village centre. All are currently rented out under licence agreements to residents. Occasionally plots do come available so if, as a resident you would like to apply for an allotment, please e-mail the clerk to the council at: firstname.lastname@example.org
For the well-being of the allotments collectively and to those working adjacent plots especially, the parish council expects tenants to keep their plots in good order in the growing season (01-March to 31-October) and tidy at other times. Plots should be regularly weeded and (out of hand) pests dealt with without impact on other plot holders. The allotments are a parish ‘green space’ and the parish council asks that tenants support biodiversity and encourage pollinators.
