Herne and Broomfield Parish Council have this year established a new allotment site next to the BMX track at Herne on land previously used as farm land. The site was set up as a response to local demand. An active site association has been formed to look after the site on a day to day basis, and there are about 50 full size plots available.
There are plenty of people that have taken up plots, and the site is well supported. Fencing is being improved sustainable water supply is being sourced, and on site storage for tools and supplies is being arranged.
