My New Allotment

It’s an exciting time in our village, with the development of allotments in a field not far from here. Championed by the parish council, a local landowner was persuaded to donate the space, and we’ve been watching progress with interest. It’s taken a time to get the suitable planning permission, and then toilets and car parking. A water supply had to be installed too; but at last we've been told we can pick up the keys to the gates.

So I’ll be blogging about the allotment in the coming months. I’ve already ordered a little shed. Watch this space to see how things go, and about our successes and (possibly) failures.

  1. I shall have to find out how your parish council managed to persuade the land owner so that I can lobby our local parish council to do the same...
