South Brent Allotments
Known as VRAA (Vicarage Road Allotment Society) the Allotment field is behind the Village Hall and is accessed from the road opposite the Manor House on Vicarage Road.
The field was bought by the Parish Council in 2005 after a campaign that had been started some ten years earlier.
The field has been divided into forty three plots and there are fifty members of the Society. VRAA is self-financing and self-managed and to this end a management committee is elected every year, which oversees the programme of work and basic maintenance tasks.
There is water on site, provided by a bore hole and extracted via an electric pump worked by a generator.
There is always a waiting list for a plot although generally within a year there is a reasonable turn around. The current fees are £20 for a half plot and £30 for a full plot, these figures are made up of £10 membership plus rental.
