Gildersome allotment to get security improvements

An allotment in Gildersome is to have its fencing completed later this month following work by Morley Borough Independent councillors.

The allotment, on Gelderd Road, already has fencing on three sides but holders requested the site be fully fenced off following problems with vandalism and arson.

Coun Tom Leadley said “We are supporting Gildersome Allotments as we know they do an excellent job encouraging people of all ages to grow their own food.

This is a big positive towards better health and finalising the fencing will mean they can continue with their fine work.”
