Holbeach Parish Council has some allotments available for rent at its site on Battlefields Lane.

Holbeach residents can make a small part of the town their own by renting an allotment from the parish council.

Plots are now available on Battlefields Lane where people can grow their own vegetables, but demand is high as eight spaces have already been taken.

A council spokesman said: “People appear to want small garden plots these days, so we have split up a large plot on Battlefields Lane into ten smaller plots.

“They are big enough to grow vegetables, rather than sell produce from, as growing your own seems to be the thing these days and can save money as well.”
