And a Happy New Year to you.
As it is the beginning of another calendar year, it is also the time for annual rents to be paid. At Fulham Palace Meadows Allotments, there are two opportunities to pay this, over the first two weekends of the year.
Whilst, there were plenty of volunteers assisting the process, it wasn’t perhaps the most efficient use of my time, waiting 40 minutes to enter the Tea Hut, to show your membership card, two proofs of your local address and my payment. In return, I received a new membership card for 2015, my rental contract and the rules/ regulations for the Allotments. At £35 for a full plot for a full year, I think it is value for money. Especially, if you consider how much produce you can grow and enjoy from the plot. (Produce compilation)
