 The Annual General Meeting will be held in the Village Hall at 7pm on Thursday 15th February 2024.

Everyone is welcome to join us for this meeting.

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.

Allotments

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. We currently have a waiting list for plots and if you wish to be added please contact Richard Goodman at charitybaldwins@gmail.com,
