Run­ning the rule over al­lot­ments

Gardeners' World - - On The Cover -

As a young fam­ily with an al­lot­ment, I to­tally agree with Lia Leen­dertz ( Over The Fence, Novem­ber is­sue) that al­lot­ment rules need to change. We are lucky at our al­lot­ment as we are al­lowed to have a swing and a mud kitchen for the kids. How­ever, when the kids are play­ing and mak­ing a noise, we do get an­noyed looks from fel­low al­lot­ment own­ers, sug­gest­ing that all may not agree with us. James Hard­ing, Kent As an al­lot­ment ten­ant, Rob Smith un­der­stands the ne­ces­sity of hav­ing rules on an al­lot­ment site ( Over The Fence, Novem­ber is­sue). We have rules in place to cre­ate a site with a pleas­ant aes­thetic ap­pear­ance. I am sad to say that Lia al­lud­ing to young fam­i­lies be­ing the new blood is wish­ful think­ing – on our al­lot­ment less than 10 per cent of ten­ants are un­der 50. David Faulkner, Kent

Are al­lot­ment rules too strict, or are they a ne­ces­sity?
