Kendal’s allotments feature in the ‘Kendal in Bloom’ competition giving site owners the opportunity to enter as individuals and or sites, 2016 winners included Sedbergh Road (Bronze), Wattsfield (silver) and Greenside (Gold).
The allotment rent is decided by Kendal Town Councillors each year in November. There was a slight increase in 2016, the first increase in 3 years, of 1p per m2. Allotment rent received from tenants is used towards the cost of administration, the services of the handyperson, water bills, repairs and renewing of fencing and boundary walls, pest control and tree cutting. The current rent has been calculated at 0.34 p per m2.
Click here for a sample copy of the Amended Tenancy Agreement. The agreement states that cockerels are not permitted on any of the allotment sites. Tenants found with cockerels on their plots will be asked to remove them immediately as this is a breach of the terms and conditions of the Tenancy Agreement.
FYI – Manure Supplies
A supplier at Oxenholme Farm leaves out bags of free horse manure outside the premises for collection. Look out for the Horse Stables sign.
