From...wick Town Council's newsletter 'There is a big demand for allotments in the town, with over 40 people on the council's waiting list. With financial assistance from... Council a new allotment site of around 25 plots situated off... Lane is due to open as soon as contractors have completed work on the site.' How exciting eh? I'm not on that waiting list but I did have to wait 2 years to get my Lottie and I've heard that it's a nationwide problem. All has changed in recent years, from thousands of plots unwanted and running to brambles, to a fashion for 'grow your own'. For a lot of folk, the only thing growing is their site's waiting list. But here's at least one local Council in England taking action to provide land!
