Two new notices have appeared on the site noticeboard:
So it appears there will be eight inspections this summer. As the first notice makes clear, this is at the behest of FEDEGA (Edinburgh and District Allotments and Gardens Association. Every Edinburgh allotment holder pays an annual subscription of £2:50. In return FEDAGA runs the annual vegetable and flower show. They also propose more inspections and came up with a scheme for "ramping up" the allotment rents to £100 per annum.
Who's side are the committee on? It's like the AA arguing for more speed traps and higher road tax!!!
I will be withdrawing my subscription next year. Although that may be hard as the Council collect it together with the rental. Spot the connection?
