Ellerker Allotments

From Ellerker Parish Council to all the residents of Ellerker.

Currently we have three tenants working on the Stone Pitt Fields Allotment Gardens. A further two plots are available for rent. If you would like to join them, please contact the Clerk to the Parish Council by E Mail () or Telephone (07432 049542) for information.

The rent from plots which is currently £45 per annum is used to maintain the allotments and pays for cutting the flower meadow / hedges and the grass around the fruit trees and paths. The income from the 3 occupied plots is not enough to cover this.

7 good reasons to have an allotment.

  1. Exercise
  2. You eat more fruit and vegetables…and they’re free of pesticides
  3. Help the environment
  4. Sense of community
  5. Routine, project work and daily maintenance
  6. Saves you money
  7. Children love the magic of DIY including growing their own produce on an allotment.
