I think I’ve talked a little bit about my allotment neighbour, Joe and how this year has not been a good one for him. We saw him this weekend and he told us that he’s going to give up the plot this year. Our allotment year runs from 1st October and the chair of the committee has confirmed that I’m top of the waiting list for a whole plot. So we expanding and all of plot 186 becomes ours to tend.We were sort of expecting that this would happen but we’ll be really sorry to see Joe leave, he’s had the plot probably longer than I’ve been alive and he’s been a great source of encouragement and knowledge in the last couple of years and in fact said that he’s sad to be leaving but happy that he can hand it over to us ‘girls’. Fortunately, his daughter has the plot directly opposite, so I’m sure that we’ll get some visits.
