A lot to like about allotments

Updated: 12:44 pm, Aug 15, 2015

DIG your own at the Redditch Road allotments in Studley where a number of plots are available to rent.

The news comes as the nation celebrates National Allotment Week which runs until August 16 on the theme of ‘A Garden For All Ages’.

Plot secretary Eric Holder said: “Renting an allotment provides an excellent opportunity to grow your own fresh fruit and vegetables, meet new people and get plenty of fresh air and exercise.”

The Redditch Road site now contains more than 100 productive and well maintained plots.

There are however a few that remain untaken – at £21.75 per year – and anyone interested in taking them up should contact Mr Holder on 07539 630001.
