Milverton community allotments

Spring is almost here and allotment holders have already started preparing beds and tidying plots in readiness for planting.

So, it is fabulous news that we have been given £900 by the Parish Council for a Water Harvesting Scheme. Thank you Phil and Anita for working hard on our behalf to achieve this. A site has been chosen and volunteers are needed to help clear and develop the plot and take down the old barren plum tree.

Many plot holders have their own rain water harvesting tanks but for newcomers and particularly those who are taking on a small plot a communal water harvesting site is needed. There is no accessible water supply at the allotment site so a communal site would be hugely helpful.

It is fantastic to see the vegetables and fruit produced and everyone will agree how wonderful it has been over the past year to have an allotment to go to.

Anyone who feels that they could help with clearing the site, put forward ideas for a design or take down the plum tree please contact Phil Young – or Anita –
