I’ve had my plot for about 16 years. Some years after I retired from working as a science teacher, I happened to be walking past and through the gate I saw a man digging his plot and I asked him how I go about getting a plot myself. He gave me the Secretary’s phone number and I made an appointment to see him.
Vicarage Park Allotments
About 15 years ago, I started with a half-plot at Vicarage Park Allotments and later took another half-plot.
I’ve always liked gardening and grew up with my father’s vegetable patch and my uncle’s allotment. They used to give me sixpence for mowing the grass.
Before I retired 7 years ago I worked as a cardboard packaging designer and I’d come to the allotment after work in the evenings and at the weekends.
