Parish Council own some two acres of land north of the houses on Foxes
Way and the Association manages these at a peppercorn rent. There are
32 plots each of 5 poles which are available for the village.
The purpose of the Association is to foster interest in gardening in Comberton and this is achieved by holding an Open Show, usually in the autumn, and a Plant Sale, usually in June. We also sponsor a Best Kept Garden competition with a prize of a Silver Spoon presented at the show.
Membership stands at £2 per year. Rent per plot is as low as £10 per year (half for concessions). Contact the Secretary, Robin Worship ( ).
We only manage the Parish Council allotments off Long Road. The allotments in South Street are slightly larger (and the plots are 10 pole each) and are owned and managed by the Loyal and Ancient Order of Shepherds, which has its HQ in Market Street, Ely.
