Communal Allotment Shed - October 2019

NEW COMMUNAL SHED FOR KINGS HILL ALLOTMENTS

Kings Hill Parish Council are delighted to announce that a communal shed for allotment holders has now been constructed at Kings Hill allotment site and is ready for use.

A formal request was made by the Kings Hill Allotment Interest Group for a communal shed and funding for the project was made available from Borough Councillor Matthew Balfour’s Kent County Council Member’s Fund.

Councillor Balfour visited the site on Wednesday 16th October 2019, together with Kings Hill Parish Councillor’s Barker, Colman and Sherlaw, to view the completed shed. Cllr Balfour said that the allotment site and the communal shed were such a good idea to help residents grow their own food as the gardens on Kings Hill are not big enough.
