Fochriw Allotment Society

Synopsis

During February 1916 a meeting was held in the Council Schools to discuss the possibility of converting a plot of  Council owned land into an allotments. In order to do this the Council required 60 names of people that were interested. Each allotment plot would be 10 perches, the annual rental being 6d per perch.

The first Annual Flower and Vegetable Show  took place during September 1918 and the judges commended all exhibitors on the quality of their produce given the condition of the land.

The following year saw  Pentwyn join the Society, with Penybanc joining during 1920 since each of the villages boasted an allotment.

During the 1960/70’s the allotments became largely unused with the Penybanc and Pentwyn allotments ceasing to exist, however, subsequently, the Fochriw allotment took on a new lease of life and, to date (2008) is still active, conifer trees having been planted around the curtilage of the allotment to act as a wind break.
