Allotments revamp

Have your say

WORK to expand and revamp South Yorkshire allotments will soon be completed.

Barnsley Council has been carrying out the project at Highgate allotments on George Street, Dearne South, creating new plots and making new services available for existing plot-holders.

Work has included clearing vegetation from overgrown plots, extending and improving the allotment track, and increasing the amount of water standpipes.

Sue Precious, allotment plot holder and member of Highgate Allotment Society, said: “The work being carried out on Highgate allotments is a fantastic improvement for both the current allotment holders and local residents.”
