News and information about the Allotments

Honda Announcement & Allotment site

Honda has issued a press release today with details about the future of its main Swindon site. The press release sent to the Parish Council can be found here.

As many of you will be aware, South Marston allotments sit on land that currently belongs to Honda that is rented for a minimal fee. The Parish Council has previously requested that Honda gifts the land to the parish as part of its legacy when it leaves. From previous correspondence, and talking to a Honda representative today, we remain hopeful that this will be the case and will be seeking further clarity on the future of the allotment site over the coming months .



South Marston Allotments

We have vacancies at the village site for residents to join us in the early spring.

Would you like to eat fresh fruit and vegetables and keep fit?

You can do all this in the fresh air and in good company, all for £29.10 a year plus a £50 refundable deposit.

Far less that you would pay for gym membership!

Do you want more time in the open air? If so, perhaps you should take up an allotment in South Marston village?

We have two lovely and manageable allotments looking for a caring tenant. With just a little work, you could be planting your winter onions & garlic and putting in your broad beans for the spring.
