A 40 years' wait for allotments

Staffordshire village gets allotments after 40 years...

Over 45 allotment plots have been re-created on the former site at High Hill, Essington, which has stood abandoned for more than 40 years. Councillor David Clifft (Independent), chairman of Essington Allotments Association said: "In just six months local residents and parish councillors have transformed the completely overgrown two acre site into a finely tended field." Over 40 people have already secured their plots and just a few remain for rent."
