It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (1921 – 2021).
Covid-19 Notice: At the time of writing, the Government has stated that working on an allotment can be classified as your one form of daily exercise (for a maximum of one hour per day).However, at all times social-distancing and health and safety rules must be applied – for example, work on the allotment alone (not even with members of your own household), remain at least two metres from other people, ensure you wash your hands regularly and/or wear protective items, etc.
Should any member of your household become ill with the symptoms of COVID-19, you must of course follow Government advice, self-isolate completely and not visit the allotment.
The National Society of Allotments has produced further information and advice covering this. As this is a rapidly changing situation, please keep an eye on Government and NHS websites for the most up-to-date information.
Beverley Town Council maintains five allotments within the parish boundaries of Beverley: Sparkmill, Kitchen Lane, Queensgate, Lairgate and Keldgate. The allotments are friendly communities, where tenants support one another and share horticultural tips advice.
Applying for an Allotment
Due to increased popularity, there is currently a considerable waiting list for allotment, with residents within the boundaries of Beverley Town Council taking priority – we are unable to say how long applicants may be waiting.
Due to the ancient parish boundaries, some residents actually live in the neighbouring parishes of Woodmansey and Molescroft, even though the location of their houses appears it be in Beverley – click here to view an map of the boundaries (Beverley Parish consists of the following wards – Minster North, Minster South, St Mary’s East and St Mary’s West).
If you would like to ask about obtaining an allotment lease at any of these sites, please contact the Beverley Town Council Offices or download a form and send it back to us.
