We are lucky enough to have two allotment sites within the parish, they are situated at the top of Wooburn Cemetery and in New Road, Bourne End. Both sites are currently fully let with waiting lists to join. Tenancies are renewed every year at the end of January.
The Open Spaces committee has approved the installation of four beehives at the top of the cemetery in the Wooburn allotment field. The bees will be a great benefit to allotment holders in the spring and summer. An added positive is the production of local honey.
New Deer Proof Fencing has know been erected at the New road site, known as Pegg's Allotment. This is an ongoing project to keep out the hungry wildlife that wander down from time to time.
The addition of two new holding bays for both manure and chippings will be installed at Peggs in the next few months to help holders increase crop yeilds and for covering pathways within their plots.
