Tilling Drive Allotments is a thriving 100 plot group, owned and run by the community for the benefit of the residents of Stone.

We were formed when the Bibby’s factory site was sold for housing development, with the old factory allotments being deeded to a Community Interest Company to ensure that they remained as allotments in perpetuity.

Over the last few years we have received Green Awards from Stafford Borough Council both for our Composting Toilets and Easy Access Plots and we continue to recycle material wherever we can.

We are looking for the public’s help in two particular areas of recyling – paths and fencing.

We need up to 300 metres of reusable metal fencing to secure the perimeter of the site and as many paving slabs as we can find to continue building paths for plot access.

If you are about to pull down a fence or take up a path or patio and you think that the material could be re-used then please contact our volunteer Site Manager on 07719 078006

Hopefully we can help each other – the allotments get a facelift and you are saved a trip to the tip!

If you are interested in having a plot on the allotments, we have both traditional full and half plots, smaller starter plots and easy access raised beds.

Plots are popular but there is a steady turnover and the waiting list is quite short at the moment. For more information on taking on a plot, please contact our Secretary at jillpiggott@aol.com
