IMPORTANT NOTE RE: PAYMENT OF ALLOTEMENT RENT

Are you an allotment holder on Wolverton Road or Boundary Crescent allotments? You wil have received a letter asking you to pay your annual rent by 30th September.

Due to Covid 19 the Town Council Offices are closed this year and you are asked to pay by bank transfer if possible; the details are in the letter you received. If this is not possible you can post a cheque through the letterbox of the library, but please be aware that, as the offices are closed, the time taken to process payments made this way will be longer than normal.

If you are posting a cheque or cash through the letter box, please kindly ensure that you include your details so that we know who the payment is for - full name and plot number. Thank you.
