FAQs: Moving Allotments

WILL YOU BE TAKING THE GREENHOUSE?
Yes.

WILL YOU BE TAKING THE SHED?
Not sure yet.

WILL YOU BE TAKING RUSTY WITH YOU?
No. Rusty lived in one of the houses behind my allotment. Over the past few months I’ve been training him to come visit me at my house. He know popped up every few days if I don’t go to the allotment and comes inside for some lunch.

WILL YOU BE TAKING THE FRUIT TREES AND BUSHES?
Yes.

WILL YOU BE TAKING THE RAISED BEDS?
Yes but not until The Railway Garden is far advanced so they can have a location that works.

WILL YOU BE TAKING THE BENCH?
At the moment I’m donating the bench to the allotment site. I don’t think it will be possible to move it.

ARE YOU GROWING HERITAGE SEEDS THIS YEAR?
Yes, I will be growing varieties popular during the 1940s Dig for Victory campaign.

WILL YOU BE MOVING HOUSE?
At some point this year.

WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO MOVE PLOTS?
Moving house this year.

HOW FAR IS THE RAILWAY GARDEN FROM THE RUSTY ALLOTMENT?
45 minute walk.

WHERE IS THE RAILWAY GARDEN?
Kent, South East England, UK.

WILL YOU KEEP THE RUSTY ALLOTMENT NOW YOU HAVE THE RAILWAY GARDEN?
I’ve informed the committee I’m ending my tenancy in Spring 2019 (that’s when we pay the rent) and aim to remove everything throughout the year. If I’m complete by Autumn then I’ll hand the plot over then.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE FLOWERS ON THE RUSTY ALLOTMENT?
I’ll be moving everything which can be moved.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO MISS ABOUT THE RUSTY ALLOTMENT?
Rusty.

WILL YOU STAY IN TOUCH WITH YOUR FELLOW ALLOTMENTEERS ON THE RUSTY ALLOTMENT SITE?
No. Over the years I’ve seen people come and go. As much as everyone says “let’s stay in touch”, the reality is that everyone has busy lives.

WILL YOU JOIN THE COMMITTEE ON THE NEW ALLOTMENT SITE?
No.
