Wittering Parish Council has 20 allotments on land leased by Peterborough City Council off Church Road.
Twenty plots measuring approximately 21m x 10m are managed for the Parish Council by the Wittering Gardening and Horticultural Society who collect the rents, allocate plots and generally run the site on behalf of the Council who finance the lease and on-tap water supply.
The perimeter fencing was recently renewed to prevent the invasion of destructive badgers and extended to encompass more land which will be cleared and prepared later this year to provide an additional 10 half-plots which will help to reduce the ever growing waiting list.
All members of the Gardening & Allotment Society are also members of the National Society of Allotments from which supplies of seeds are obtainable at very reasonable prices.
Rentals (£6.00 per annum for full plots and £3.00 per annum for ½ plots) are generously subsidised by the Parish Council.
The allotments provide a venue for friendly socialising as well as gardening and although there is a waiting list for plots at present pending the expansion of the site referred to above, new members of the Society whether male or female, young or old, expert or beginners are always welcome.
Visitors to the site are welcome and contact details are on the gate.
