The council spent a week removing rubbish and sheds from unused, previously unlettable allotments, the results are startling and needed to be photographed. Well done to the council, and particularly Mark Jennings who normally gets lots of flack from plot holders and those on the waiting list.
The site now looks so much better, and there is a chance we can reach the target of having all plots not only let but cultivated. There is a noticeably increased number of people regularly tending their plots and spirits are high despite record diffculties in growing anything this year.
It was too cold, then too dry, now too hot and dry..
Anyway here are a few photos taken recently:
Below an example of a plot that has been cleared by the council and is awaiting cultivation.
There are spaces on this glorious site and many others in Swindon.
