The Commons Allotments Charity

Written by

The charity scheme was approved and established by the Charity Commissioners in 1968. It is a small charity which owns circa 32.4 acres (circa 13.1 hectares) of land in the parish of Great Torrington.

The majority of the land is rented by a local farmer. The remainder is used by the Council as allotments for local people.

The modest income for the Charity comes from the letting of the land and from investments. Each year grants are awarded towards charitable purposes for the benefit of the inhabitants of the parish.

Great Torrington Town Council administers the COMMONS ALLOTMENTS CHARITY.  Each year the charity allocates its small amount of funds to locally based community groups. 

Application forms for grant aid during the year 2019/2020 are now available, please see attachment below or a paper format is available from the Council office if you prefer.  Please contact Charlotte Kirby, Office Manager on 01805 626135 between 9am and 1pm Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday or email her on admin@great-torringtontowncouncil.gov.uk.

Please ensure completed applications are submitted no later than 12 noon on Thursday 13th September 2018.
