The Allotments are situated on the corner of Middlemoor Road and to the rear of the houses on Newton Road.
All allotments are managed and administered by the Whittlesford Parish Council.
There are approximatley 60 plots and are usually in high demand and often a waiting list.
The Allotment year runs from 1st October – 30th September and tenancies are renewed on an annual basis.
Current rent per plot is £24 plus a £5 contribution to mains water.
Allotments are for personal use only for the growing of fruit, vegetables and flowers.
The Community Orchard was a pilot project of the Parish Council back in 2011. A rather fresh and crisp December morning…. a sub committee of the parish council used a small allotment plot and planted the first of 9 fruit trees, the trees a mixture of Apple, Pear, Cherry, Plum and greengage were planted, the trees soon established and by the Spring of 2012 they were thriving. 2013 saw the first fruits and the trees have continued to mature over the years. Anyone is welcome to harvest the fruit from the trees.
A New Community project recently launched in 2022 of a Community Allotment, the community allotment allows you to get involved in the same way but without having to take on a whole plot. Would you like to be a part of a working group who can meet as little or as often as you wish, there are always plenty of odd jobs from general to more technical with a friendly working outdoor community group.
