Whey plotter , good that you have the plot , some one did the the right thing , agree better to  keep quite and get on with things , they obviously known they screwed up 

Personally I would help in the shop so I could occasionally remind them of errors 

best of luck with the allotment

Whey plotter , back to your original problem lots of advice and suggestions , basically the people who run it seem totally incompetent , you should get your money back , the idea of sharing the other plot seems good to me , as it wasn't his fault either , if he want help that is 

Have you got time to join the committe and sort them out

Best of luck

Gina , agree with above a little Porch for tea and shelter , in fact the allotment plot next to mine have just built one  Agree the dog does look comfortable and should not be disturbed 

Allotment looks good , have been up to mine  this afternoon for a couple hours , put some broad beans & pea in for over wintering , put cloches over them and weeded a couple of onion beds

somedody put a notice on hear about keeping Chickens , our Association is going to make it a condition that they have " rat proof " feeders , as they are an ongoing problem , a local farmer gets us commercial rat poison but it cost £50 a tub , therefore , I would recommend one
