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.

If you would like to apply for an allotment, please can you contact Alan Barker by 1st September 2022

Anne Robinson Helpline

Introducing the Anne Robson Helpline – if you or someone close to you is dying, you can talk to us.

At the Anne Robson Trust we aim to be there to listen to anyone who faces dying or the imminent death of someone they care about.  We know that facing the end of life can leave you feeling isolated and alone.

Being able to access support is so important. Gaining knowledge of what may happen towards the end of life and being prepared helps both the person dying and their loved ones to feel a sense of control.

Calls are free and confidential. Call us on 0808 801 0688 – we have time to talk

Please visit www.annerobsontrust.org.uk/helpline-service to find out more.
