Notice to all Allotment Tenants: If you take children onto the allotment field please make sure that they remain on your plot and do not cause a nuisance to other allotment holders, by making a lot of noise and running around the site. Whilst the Parish Council does it best to try to make sure the allotments are safe this is an area for growing food and flowers and not a playground. Due to vehicles driving onto the allotment ground when the ground is soft, the ridings are very rutted and it is not safe to ride cycles on the ridings for children or adults. Please do not park vehicles on the ridings, you can drive to your plot to off-load heavy items but do not obstruct the ridings for others. If your plot is a long way from the entrance gates and car park areas, and you feel you need to have your car near your plot, then please make a parking area on your plot.

- The water supply is now off until 1 April 2022. The vehicle gates will be locked from 1 November until 1 April 2022 - there will be no access for vehicles between those dates.
- The owner of the stables is concerned about smoke blowing from bonfires into the stables. Please think carefully before lighting bonfires as this really should only need to be once or twice a year, and not when the wind is blowing towards either the stables or Newport Road.
