The allotments at Grace & Flavour are a discrete project, outside/alongside the walled garden. They are operated by Grace & Flavour on behalf of the East and West Horsley Parish Councils. They are accessible through the main Grace & Flavour entrance on Ripley Lane, next to Dene Place.
After a great deal of effort clearing the land the allotments were released to the plotholders on Saturday 2nd April 2011. The first plant - a gooseberry bush. Since then much effort has been put into the plots by the allotmenteers who have reaped the benefit of their hard work with fresh locally grown produce.
How it works
The allotments are leased direct from Grace and Flavour, and your local Parish Council will channel applications and manage the waiting list.
Priority is given to local residents, and allotments are for growing fruit, vegetables, and/or flowers for personal and family use only. The lease is based on national standard allotment contracts.
What to do
To get your name onto the waiting list for an allotment at Grace & Flavour you should contact your Parish clerk:
West Horsley Parish Clerk e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
East Horsley Parish Clerk e-mail: email@example.com
You can always volunteer in the community garden while you are waiting - and may decide to stay there (at least you can have a holiday, confident that your veg will be tended and watered by the community team!)
I have been advised that frost is forecast overnight Tues/Weds this week, so I will be draining the dip tanks and turning off the supply for the winter on Tuesday afternoon. If you want your end of season bath best make it quick!
The padlock number has recently been changed and all should have been notified of this.
If you have not got the voicemail number complete the enquiry form and it will be sent to you.
