The Annual General Meeting will be held in the Village Hall at 7pm on Thursday 17th February 2022.
Everyone welcome. For the agenda click here.
The Baldwins Charity Trust was set up in the 19th century to maintain an area of land on the western edge of Ullesthorpe for the benefit of the poor of the village. Part of this land is now used for grazing sheep and cattle and the footpath and track running across this area is in regular use by walkers. The other part is devoted to about 18 allotments.
The Baldwins Charity allotments are on the left at the bottom of the hill out of Ullesthorpe going towards Claybrooke.
All the plots for the 2021 season are allocated and we still have a waiting list that the current number of allotments will not be able to fulfil. We have land available to convert into more allotments,
We would like to hear from anyone interested in taking an allotment who is not on the current waiting list to contact us now so we can gauge the level of interest and provide enough plots to satisfy the need.
Allotment gardening is great fun and extremely rewarding, but it is also a lot of hard work, so if you don’t think you can manage a full sized plot, don’t be put off asking for a smaller one, rent is £12 for the 2021 season.
