Kings Hill Allotments Strategy

 

September 2016 

 

9th November 2015

 

Against all odds and bad weather on the day there were smiles all round for the grand opening of
Kings Hill Parish Council's new allotment site on Saturday 7th November.

The opening saw celebrity and veteran horticulturist Mr Jim Buttress, Patron of South and South East in Bloom and a judge on the TV series 'The Big Allotment Challenge', the Mayor of Tonbridge & Malling, Councillor Owen Baldock and the Mayoress Mrs Christine Balkdock attend the ceremony, together with a number of Kings Hill Parish Councillors.  Mr Buttress opened the site by cutting the ribbon and gave advice to the allotment tenants who were able to attend the opening ceremony.  Refreshments of mulled wine and carrot cake were enjoyed in the warm and dry of the Sports Pavilion.

21st September 2015 

The new Kings Hill allotments are now fully complete and allotment holders are starting to take up and work their plots.  An official opening ceremony for Kings Hill is to be organised - date to be confirmed. 

Allotment holders are working very hard on their allotments and Kings Hill Parish Council are sure that that this time next year all their hard work will pay off and they will have a wonderful array of fruit and vegetables.
