As part of my weekend round-up, I should have mentioned that a group of allotment holders are planning to get together to form an association. L’incident de polytunnel and the formal tenancy agreements has galvanised some of us into some sort of action.
We need a voice and we need to be formally recognised by the parish council in order to talk like civilised people about terms, conditions, rules and regulations.
However, I am often in the agreement with Groucho Marx:
I don’t care to belong to a club that accepts people like me as members.
There will now be as many committees in the village as there are in Westminster.
Meanwhile, the allotmenteers of South Hams are manning the barricades in support of more allotments.
Vive La Revolution!
