Community Allotment BDC official photo

Our Community Allotment at the Village Park was created to benefit everyone in the village in a variety of ways, and we are very grateful to Braintree District Council for two Levelling Up fund Community Gardens grants to help us make it a beautiful productive space which is restful to visit. The grants have enabled us to buy tools, install raised beds, a potting shed and rainwater harvesting, as well as folding chairs & table with a gazebo for rainy or sunny days. 

Please feel welcome to:

  • Volunteer at our weekly sessions, Wednesdays 10am to 12 noon.  No experience necessary, just come along to enjoy being outdoors and part of a friendly group of volunteers
  • Drop by for a visit and a chat at a weekly Wednesday morning session, our Community Allotment volunteers will be pleased to see you and might even offer a coffee!
  • Enjoy our freshly harvested seasonal produce which can be collected from the Village Shop at St James Street. We want our fresh vegetables and fruit to be available to everyone, an optional donation will of course be welcome
  • Join in with our Community Allotment events over the coming season, we have plans and hope to see you there!
