Amongst the 'green' spaces within the village over and above those providing for sport and general recreation, there are others serving specific purposes but which are still wildlife friendly. This includes the churchyard and ruined church area and the allotments beside it.
Glenfield Parish Council owns these allotments, with the main entrance off Main Street and a pedestrian access from Glebe Close
Allotments have become very popular over recent years and all of our allotments are taken. There is a modest rental for the allotments which come in three sizes. Rental includes the cost of the maintenance of the area, driveway, shelter, notice board and hedges and the cost of the water supply.
The Parish Council has now acquired an additional set of allotments off Mill Lane. This site accommodates about 20 full sized allotments but some have been sub-divided. Pricing of these units mirror the existing plots. This land has been pasture land in the flood plain and as such should be very fertile and productive.
The new Mill Lane allotments
We are now able to offer plots to non-residents but these will not be subsidised to the same extent as they are to residents
The pricing structure for the seasons January 1st 2018 – December 31st 2018 is:
Large Plot £67 (discounted to £52 for residents of the village)
Medium Plot £33.50 (discounted to £26 for residents of the village)
Small Plot £16.75 (discounted to £13 for residents of the village)
Allotments are rented via the Parish Office, who should be contacted if you wish to put your name on the waiting list. Alternatively you can submit your request on-line.
The Council have also recently adopted a new policy in respect of the "Conditions for Keeping of Bees on Allotments" and welcomes any registered bee keeper/allotment tenant who is interested in this subject to contact us.
