The allotment site is situated in the village behind properties on Clacton Road and the area is also home to the tennis court. Access is off Clacton Road via a private lane opposite the post office/village shop. Parking is available on site to allotment holders only through a locked gate.
There are 23 plots, with no current vacancies.
Allotment holders have use of an on site water supply, however the use of sprinklers is strictly prohibited.
Manure is provided for use by allotment holders.
Upon taking up a plot the Council ask for an inital deposit of £20 which is refundable on surrendering the tenancy.
The rent is currently £17 a year, water and manure are extra and vary each year (2018/19 plot rent total £32)
A meeting of the Parish Council and allotment holders is held in October each year. The next Annual Allotment Holders Meeting will be held on Wednesday 2nd October 2019 at 7pm.
If you would like to be put on the waiting list for a plot please send your details to the Parish Clerk. Whilst applications are accepted from local areas surrounding the village, should a plot become available Thorrington residents will have priority.
