I wonder if anyone can help me..
I've been wracking my brains as to what to get my mum for her 50th birthday! (Monday) although she is away until tues, but I'm at uni so have a little longer to sort it out!
After thinking long and hard (I'm blonde, so this occassionally hurts... Nothing to do with my science degree..) and then I remembered she's always wanted an allotment! And she is on the waiting list - unfortunately, I have no contacts who work in the council who could push her up the list, so to speak!
I rang up today, and she is on the waiting list for Woodlands road, Gillingham. Beacause she lives in Darland, this is the closest plot this is the list she gets allocated to .. although I'm sure she'll be prepared to travel 5-10 mins in the car!
In 2009 she was 90 something on the list, today she was around 74th!
Now, for her birthday I was going to pay her allotment fees for a year - and obviously beacause I cannot wrap it, I was going to put banners up and take her there - thought it would be a lovely idea - until the woman told me she was 70+ on this list.
I then search private allotments.. and not much joy there..
Please please, can anyone help..
In the Gillingham (Kent) area: Does anyone own 2+ plots and are willing to share.
Or does anyone have a plot they are finding difficult on there own and are willing to share????
Any information anyone has, I would be very grateful!!!!
