MU reported that so far 10 residents had so far asked for allotments.

He said that in his opinion that was to many for the space behind the Hall. He asked Cllr.GR because of the interest from the community and has the response was only to one mention in the Parish Magazine  if SPC might be approached to consider having allotments on Peaslake Farm.  Cllr GR was against the idea saying  in her opinion if they were neglected the space might then be considered for building on.

Cllr GR went on to say that she will call a meeting of the 10 interested parties to see the land behind the hall could be proportioned and discussing cultivating the land and upkeep.
