No food is fresher than the food you grow yourself. You can choose what food you grow and how you grow it on a Town Council allotment. This year we want to encourage beginners by offering small starter plots on the four sites that we manage across the Town. The soil is good – the climate here by the sea means that a really wide range of fruit and veg can be gown. You can stick with the traditional or you can try some more unusual tasty varieties at a fraction of the cost in the shops. We support organic growing as well so you can fit in a few flowers and encourage friendly wildlife.

Contact the Land and Communities Officer at the Town Council Offices by phone, email, via our website – or just do it the old-fashioned way and drop in to see us at Maison Dieu House.
