Growing your own fruit and veg has become a very popular past-time, with waiting lists for all allotment sites across the area.
Ducklington Parish Council runs the allotment site alongside the A415 near Ducklington roundabout. Ducklington residents are given priority when an allotment becomes vacant.
To put your name on the waiting list:
Allotments are leased on a yearly basis but may become available during the year. If you are on the waiting list you will be contacted by the Clerk as soon as an allotment becomes available. The allotment plots vary in size with the one most commonly let being 120 square yards. The charge for a 120 square yard allotment for 2009 was £5.57 per annum plus £8.50 contribution towards the water rates. The charges are reviewed annually.
The Parish Council is unable to give advice on the allotment gardening. We would strongly recommend seeking the advice of neighbouring allotment holders or the NSALG (National Society of Allotment & Leisure Gardeners) which is a provident society that aims to promote and protect allotment gardens.
The Lakeside allotments near the Four Pillars hotel are run by Witney Allotment Association. Only people resident within the town of Witney are eligible for an allotment at this site. Please contact the Allotment Association for more details.
