The allotments can be worked during the Covid19 lockdown as that is view as exercise following national guidance here.
Growing on an allotment is a wonderful thing! Fresh air, good food and help with neighbours.
There are 66 allotment plots on a site off Lippiat Lane which are managed by the Timsbury Allotments Committee on behalf of the Parish Council which owns the site.
You are welcome to apply for a full or half plot at any time. We help beginners to get going and keep going to enjoy some wonderful produce.

Details about how the allotments are run are in plot holder’s signed Agreement, and also in the Allotments Handbook which you can read or download here:
The allotments administration are financed by rents from the plot-holders. This money is paid to the Parish Council who are responsible for paying for the water supply to the site and the overall infrastructure of the site.
The Allotments Committee receive a grant each year from the Parish Council to pay for upkeep and maintenance of the site. This pays for items such as communal tools, fuel, clearing of vacant plots, notice boards, hedge-cutting and insurance as decided by the committee in consultation with plot holders. The Committee are accountable to the plot-holders at the AGM in early December each year. The annual accounts are shown below.
The Committee Treasurer is Tim Nobbs, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
