Kettlestone Parish Council is the managing Trustee of the Surveyor’s Allotment. It is has recently purchased a replacement gate for the entrance to the plot of land. This is a step towards the long-term development of the site as a community environmental plot. A rough path has also been cut to make it possible to walk round the site.
Click Kettlestone Surveyor's Allotment to see more photos and the location.
When you visit the allotment, it would be great if you could let us know what plants, birds, animals and insects you see, so that we can begin to build up a record of the wildlife there. Please send an email (stating what you have seen and when - with a photo if you can) to e-mail:firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you.

YOUR PARISH COUNCIL
Kettlestone Parish Council meets on the third Monday of alternate months at 7.30 pm in the Village Hall. Members of the public are welcome to attend. There is a regular slot in the Agenda to allow Parishioners to raise matters of concern. This is also a time when the District and County Councillors report on their work.
The Parish Council maintains close and regular contact with other authorities, e.g. the District and County Councils, to promote the best interests of the community of Kettlestone.
• It considers planning applications and advises the District Council of its decisions to support or object.
• It notifies the relevant authority of potholes, damaged road signs, and other items that are in the village but managed by the District or County Councils.
• It makes donations to causes that are of benefit to parishioners.

The Annual Parish Meeting is a meeting for all parish electors. In Kettlestone we use it as an opportunity for village groups to share what they have been doing throughout the year, to celebrate achievements and involve others for future activities.
If you are involved with a village group, you are invited to give a short résumé of the group’s activities and plans. Nothing too long is required. If possible please supply the Clerk with a copy of your report to have on file, put on the website and to print in the Parish News. You may email your report to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Everyone is invited to attend. We look forward to seeing you.
