Auction Of Allotments

A Berkshire council will be selling new allotment plots in an online auction.

Windsor and Maidenhead will sell 14 plots for those with spare cash, money talks. The National Society Of Allotment & Leisure Gardeners spokesman said this scheme was unfair to people who could not meet the reserve prices.

Council deputy leader Simon Dudley said: "It's one of our manifesto pledges to have more allotments and we're hoping to roll out more." They only seem interested in those with cash, for some reason.

In Wokingham BC some areas, Woodley have good allotment provision, I live in Early where they dont. I support the Earley Allotments Action Group that is trying to do something about this.
