Allotments

PANGBOURNE ALLOTMENTS

The allotments are administered by Pangbourne Parish Council and are situated on the edge of the village to the south, with the entrance on Grahame Avenue (off Kennedy Drive).

There are over 50 whole plots (each measuring approximately 10m x 30m) but quite a few are divided into halves or thirds, which still gives a very good growing area. The soil is light and free-draining, but fertile. There are water standpipes dotted around the allotments and the cost of the water is included in the annual rental charge.

For 2017 a whole allotment costs £40 p.a. payable at the end of March, with a discount for prompt payment at present set at 25%; also a small further discount for pensioners. Halves and thirds are pro rata, with a minimum charge of £10.

The Pangbourne Allotment Association was set up in July 2012 and has actively been working to improve the facilities at the allotments since then. The Chairman is Andrew Lawrence; Secretary: Cathy Pumphrey; Treasurer: Stuart John, with Joanna Power representing the Parish Council. If you have any allotment-related matters that you wish us to bring up at the next meeting, would you please contact the Parish Clerk, Mavis Law, clerk@pangbourne-pc.gov.uk. Alternatively you can visit the Parish Office on Tuesday mornings 9.30 – 12.30 or Thursday afternoons 14.00 – 17.00.

You need to live in Pangbourne or within a mile of its boundary to be eligible for a plot. At the moment the waiting list is short; if you would like to put your name down, please contact Jo Power on 0118 984 5898, or email the parish clerk (as above).
