Many groups and individuals enjoy Kendal’s allotments, including Age UK who provide allotment sessions every Thursday morning between 10.30am – 12.30pm. If you would like to find out more contact Charlotte Robinson, Volunteer Support Officer on 01539 728118.
The allotment rent is decided by Kendal Town Councillors each year in November. Allotment rent received from tenants is used towards the cost of administration, the services of the Townscape Manager, water bills, repairs and renewing of fencing and boundary walls, pest control and minor tree cutting. The current rent has been calculated at 0.37 p per m2.
Each allotment holder signs a Tenancy Agreement. The agreement states that cockerels are not permitted on any of the allotment sites and hens are only permitted on Coley Barn, Sandylands, Underley Hill, Underley Road and Shaws Brow. 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.

The Townscape Manager has just recently attended a Master Composting course. This has given him a wealth of knowledge about composting which he would like to share with all interested allotment holders. If you would like to find out more please telephone Janine Holt on 01539 793495 who will pass the information on to the Townscape Manager. Please some find useful links below:
