 Family allotments

Mail received from Sandbach allotment society. No resources for such a small site for water, fences, storage, insurance. But may be individuals on membership that would like an allotment.

Likely that water would be the main expense.

Idea to ask the allotment society what do you need £’s and goods in kind.

JD to respond: Thanks, understand the difficulties you are seeing at this time. Please do come and discuss what we can do for you to make this a possible partnership.

Specifically it would be possible for “us” to fence off an area, plough and prepare.
