3. Facilities - the allotments are on a gated and fenced plot of land that has footpath and public footpath around its perimeter. The allotments are serviced by metered water that is turned off during the winter months. There is a gravel road running through the allotments which facilitates vehicular access for allotment holders and service vehicles. Currently there are no toilet facilities available. A skip is provided once a year for rubbish.

Additional costs are £30 for a deposit which can be recovered if the plot is handed back in good condition; there is also an administration fee of £10. The keeping of 6 chickens costs an additional £12.50 per year. Our fiscal year runs April to March.
