Grow your own food – allotment plots available

Nettlebed Parish Council have four vacant allotment plots. £15 for a full plot p/a. £7.50 for a 1/2 plot Dig for Victory was a campaign launched by the Ministry of Agriculture in 1940 to help combat food shortages in Britain by promoting the planting of allotments in gardens and on public land. Whilst Dig for Victory was a response to a wartime problem of food shortages many of its outcomes reflect things we are concerned about today:- - having access to fresh, healthy food - being active - living sustainably - saving money If you don't have the time to take on a full plot, do consider taking half a plot...perhaps share one with a friend or neighbour. Priority will be given to Nettlebed residents. Contact parish.clerk@nettlebed-pc.org.uk for more information. ...
