Arlington & Berwick

ARLINGTON ALLOTMENTS: An allotment has become available at Upper Dicker. The plot measures a little over four rods and part of it has been recently cultivated. While Arlington Parishioners have priority, residents from neighbouring parishes are also accepted. Cultivating an allotment does require a commitment of a few hours per week. However, the benefits are a year-round supply of organic fruit and vegetables, healthy exercise in a rural location and the chance to make new friends. If you are interested please contact the Parish Clerk, Mrs Alison Stevens by e-mailing her at
