I popped in to see allotment holders on the Aldridge Road Allotment site yesterday and was surprised to see how active they are. On a tour of the site with their secretary Mrs Soukal, I learnt that there are no vacant allotments and that a lot of work is being put in to turn a small poorly drained section of the site into a Nature Reserve.
It is now hoped that there will be links with the Friends of the Queslett Nature Reserve.
There is also a positive attempt to attract families to use the site.
On the down site the Council urgently need to get to grips with badly needed repairs to the pavilion roof, to remove unwanted asbestos and help to secure parts of the sites buildings. They need more help from the Council to resolve these problems
I will be doing what i can to help in this regard.
