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.
"Glebe Allotments" is located 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 obtained an additional set of allotments off Mill Lane - "Mill Lane Allotments". This site accommodates 20 full sized allotments but some have been sub-divided. This land has been pasture land in the flood plain and as such is very fertile and productive.
Plots are available to non-residents but these will are not subsidised to the same extent as they are to residents of Glenfield. NB A Glenfield resident on the "Waiting List" will take precedent over a non-resident of Glenfield.
The pricing structure for the season January 1st 2020 – December 31st 2020 is:
Large Plot £55 residents of the village (non-resident £110)
Medium Plot £30 residents of the village (non-resident £60)
Small Plot £15 residents of the village (non-resident £30)
Allotments are rented via the Parish Office. Please contact us if you wish to put your name on the waiting list. Alternatively you can submit your request on-line.
