Last Call for Allotments:
The Parish Council has yet to take ownership of the land that will be used for allotments on the David Wilson Homes site. But, in preparation for the handover the Parish Council will randomly select some Residents to form into an association, they will then take on the preparation of the land ready for a full growing year in 2019. This is your last opportunity to put your name in the hat for a chance to become part of this group of Residents that form the association. You need to email the Clerk before the 1st of July with your name and address. A meeting will then be called in July inviting all interested residents whose names are in the hat. At this meeting the association will be formed. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
