The Revolution has begun.
Looks like plot holders are getting together.
Meeting with parish council tonight.
Looks like it might work out for the best in the long run.
Community spirit and people working together as a team is needed.
Looks like this little upset has kicked the plot holders into action.
I love been down there so I really want it to be a good community of people growing food because they enjoy it.

Hope the driver wasn't still in it :wink:

Nobody said anything about the driver still being in the Ford Prefect. :mrgreen: Mind - a body is good compost (that's why graveyards grow so well, think about it).

Good session today.
Plot looking much better.
The lady opposite is going to give up her plot and help me on mine as I am disabled and struggling with the heavy stuff. She can cope with her plot but is happy to help me with payment in veg.
Win win win. It will be lovely to have someone to work with.
New committee on site .
First meeting last night with parish council present.
We are going to work together to get the site up and running.
The revolution is over.
A lot of work to make the site successful . Hopefully with a lot of help and cooperation from the members.
