A good moan...

... is often good to voice the frustration, but in this case it has also paid dividends. Had an email from the local Area Panel this morning regarding the concerns voiced by myself, another plot holder and the Sheffield Allotment Federation.

Essentially they agreed that they should be making best use of existing allotment sites and awarded the site £300 to be spent on the site in line with the wishes of the allotment holders, to be administered by the Allotment Federation.

OK so not a fortune and not going to sort out all the problems, but definitely a positive step and encouraging for us all on there. Particularly encouraging given the speed of the response and because it only took two allotment holders and the Federation to write in to them to get something done. Now all we have to do is to decide how to spend it, which is of course a nice problem to have!

More on the allotment - including pictures!!! - soon.

Probably just to clear the rubbish from the taken plots to start with, no-one seems keen enough to clear their own plot and another one as well!
