Help save the Green Lands of Tarporley Cheshire Bowling Green and Allotments from future developers

Tarporley’s allotments were established in the early-1970’s and since then have provided a much-needed resource for those wishing to benefit from some gentle exercise while producing a variety of healthy vegetables, delicious fruit and beautiful flowers.
The allotment society has hosted a huge number of activities such as shows of annual produce, assisting the primary school with their allotment patch and other competitions which have served to bring friends and neighbours even closer together so helping to foster a healthy community spirit.
In celebration of the allotments founding all those decades ago, the Tarporley Allotment Holders Society Held a free Open Day on Sunday 23rd August from 1.30 pm. Plot-holders were on hand to discuss the minutiae of fruit and vegetable growing with all comers and delighted to talk to prospective plot-holders about how to get started if they are able to protect this Green land. Exciting events for children including potting of their own seeds. Also attended representatives from other organisations The Cheshire Wildlife Trust who advised on insect-friendly flower gardening and wildlife.
An Uncertain Future
The landowner of Tarporley’s allotments and the adjacent bowling green is the Royal British Legion which is in the process of selling outright to a developer. At time of writing, it is believed the developer intends removing over half the allotment plots which will be replaced by a mix of 2/3 bedroom houses. The bowling green and clubhouse is to be replaced by an apartment block. Please show your support for our treasured allotments and bowling green by attending our Open Day where more information will be available.
The Tarporley Allotment Holders Society has 38 plots of various sizes and, despite a healthy waiting list, there are often plots available for immediate use.
The allotments are affiliated to the National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners and are also registered with CWAC as an Asset of Community Value.
The Royal British Legion is in the process of selling outright to a developer.
Please help us to save the Green Space Allotments and Bowling Green for our village by signing this petition.
Stop the sale and prevent future development.
