Unless things have changed dramatically since my day, which wasnt all that long ago, you have the right to refuse a quarter for personal reasons.
Its not an ideal start in a new area 'tis true, but if you really want a garden and if there are quarters there 'with' gardens then speak to Snowdrop and tell him to tell the families officer in your new home to be that you dont want the offered quarter, and you will wait for one with a garden.
If none of them have gardens then clearly option A, Sulk, is in order.Bob Leponge

If your new accomodation is garden-less, is there any 'spare' bits of land on site? You're not telling me that there is not a corner somewhere that couldn't be made available for growing.Hazel

Hadn't heard you'd been posted.
Bobs right, get the welfare officer involved, tell em that gardening is the only way you kept sane while snowdrop was in Afghanistan.
Can you get in touch with the HIVE? They can be incredibly helpful and might be able to get your name down for a plot.
I'm really sorry for you cause I know how hard you've work, but chin up chuck, everything happens for a reason.

I did wonder f they give accommodation with gardens mainly to peeps with kids????..just a thought....and that they automatically gave you one without a garden because you are a couple.
Oh- and where are the kitties going to play????
The welfare officer sounds a brilliant idea!"Nicos, Queen of Gooooogle" and... GYO's own Miss Marple

What crackers you are - keeping me sane and smiling
Welfare Officers aren't what they used to be, they don't have the 'power' over the Housing bods anymore. They (MOD) sold off the housing contract to the Housing Agency (no idea what they are called today cos they change often!) and then the MOD re-lease the houses back from them but don't have any say over how things are run.
It isn't a case of NO garden - just tiny garden, which is why I feel bad for sulking, but am still doing so
Thanks for the Lottie site Crosby, I have emailed the Clerk to the Parish earlier this morning. I have everything crossed that he will come good (but I've heard there are country-wide waiting lists ) and I get a lottie and all with be (almost) well.
Re the Hangars Wayne - Snowdrop has earmarked the only one that hasn't been sold off (!!) for the Harley until we get a garage, if ever we doaka

Just got this reply from Henlow Lotties:
Dear Suzie - At present we have 16 on the waiting list. Priority is given to residents of Henlow parish, so you could go to the top of the waiting list. When are you moving, and where to?
Oooh I wonder how long it takes once one is 'top of the list'! How nice that he replied so quicklyaka

*gets in the corner with Piskie and does a solidarity sulk
I'm just wondering if there is someone with a bigger garden who doesn't care for gardening who might let you borrow/use it in exchange for some fresh veg. I know it's hard to believe but some peeps don't like gardening.
Failing that, put all your tools in a van and bring them over - you can keep them in the barn (once I've cleared it out a bit )A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot! (Thomas Edward Brown)
