About The Role

Gainsborough Town Council is a multi-faceted local council which provides a large range of local services including Play Parks, Community Buildings, Grounds Maintenance, Cemeteries, Sports/Playing Pitches and Allotments.

Allotments are an important asset to our Town, we have more than 350 plots available to residents with total occupancy running at around 85 – 90%. Our extensive allotment provision offers a wide range of benefits to residents as well as providing vital green space in a predominately urban environment.  Allotments are not just a way of producing low cost food, allotments offer our residents a viable means of recreation involving healthy exercise embracing the fun and challenge of growing vegetables, fruit and flowers and raising livestock (such as chickens and rabbits) and meeting new likeminded people.

Allotments are an integral part of the council’s vision Towards a fairer Gainsborough.  The Town Council is now looking for an Allotment Officer to help develop our allotments and build meaningful relationships with our plot holders and partners.
