Allotments

CURRENT UPDATE

Saxmundham Town Council launched a desperate search for land to develop new facilities for allotments and other projects a few years ago and that is an ongoing campaign. We are appealing for landowners to offer sites in and around the town, either for rent or sale. 

Anyone who may be able to help the council with its search for land should contact the Town Clerk.

During the first half of the last century, allotments enabled many people to grow much of their own food and were an important part of the local economy. With the advent of cheap food interest in allotments waned and much of the land (in Saxmundham as elsewhere) was used for house building.

The desire for high quality fresh food has revived the interest in recent years and the Town Council has been asked to try to provide more allotments. At present there are seven privately owned allotments with a substantial waiting list. If you own, or know of, any land in the parish which might be suitable we would very much like to hear from you.

John Fisher.

All the allotments in the town are privately owned, and are as follows:

• 3 in Saxon Road, contact Mr Thompson, 46, Saxon Road, Tel: 01728 602509.
• 4 at Saxmundham Town Bowls Club, contact Mr Jim Vice, 124 Saxon Road.
Tel: 01728 603100

As of October 2014 all the allotments are in use, and the Town Clerk has a waiting list. The Town Council, in conjunction with the Saxmundham Horticultural Society, puts people who want allotments in touch with residents who have large gardens that they can't cope with. Please contact the Town Clerk for details.
