A community allotment in Tonbridge is set to benefit from a police donation of £500.

community allotmentThe money will be used to assist a project run by the Listening Ear, an initiative supported by local community support officers, which is aimed at helping people with their general well-being and based in a community allotment.

The donation came from the Kent Police Property Fund which distributes money from the sale of unclaimed lost property or items seized during police operations.

Money raised from the fund is distributed twice a year, to local groups which provide a service to communities in Kent.


The community allotment is located in Waveney Road, and overseen by the Trench Community Partnership, which is made up of a number of agencies including Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council, local schools and Kent Police.

The funds have been used to buy a new shed and other materials to help the site expand.

PCSO Linda Baker said: ‘I’m delighted we have been able to contribute to the development of this project. The Listening Ear is an important local resource which also aims to help people who may feel isolated or anxious. Some of the money will be used to help increase the number of plots at the allotment, so that more people who want to be part of the project can.’
