Here at Great Baddow we are fortunate enough to have two allotment sites, one in Vicarage Lane next to the Lawn Cemetery and one off Meadgate Avenue, known as Towerfield. There are a total of 126 plots, which have proved very popular since the first lockdown back in March 2020 and are now all fully tenanted. The Council is also currently in the process of setting up a community allotment project based at the Towerfield site. The idea is that the project will be run by volunteers to support the more vulnerable, elderly and disabled people within our community. Encouraging health and well-being and making sure everyone has the opportunity to get involved. The Grounds Manager produces a yearly newsletter for all plot holders and each year the Parish Council, in conjunction with Great Baddow Horticultural Society, runs competitions ranging from the best kept allotment to the best planted container.
All Allotments are now full but if you would like to be put on the waiting list please contact our Grounds Manager, Michele Dixon, via either email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01245 473538 or 07955 787412.
