The Common Pond has been a focal point in Hailsham for centuries and is considered to be the town’s “Jewel In The Crown”.
A significant service facilitated by Hailsham Town Council is the provision of allotments.
At present, the Council manages 96 plots on three sites in Hailsham: Battle Road (57 plots); Station Road/Common Pond (13 plots); Harold Avenue (27 plots). Standard plots are 3 or 5 rods in size.
Rental costs are: £23.10 per annum (3 rod size) and £39.60 per annum (5 rod size). A £50 deposit is requested for newly registering plotholders, which will be refunded at the time of cessation of allotment tenancy (provided the plot is left in a satisfactory and rentable condition).
For further information, please call 01323 841702 or email email@example.com for details.
Why have an allotment?
Health: Benefits achieved through exercise and a better diet of fruit and vegetables!
Environment: Benefits achieved through the use of fewer (if any!) chemicals, the composting of green waste and the recycling of materials.
Community: Benefits achieved through social contact from sharing plants, tools, produce, and knowledge!
