    Thankfully it's charity owned so straightforward there at least, but thanks for thinking of that. I'm just going to keep everything crossed I think at this stage, and hope that we can just squeeze everything together and end up with a good resolution.��

    Thank you for the information everyone.
    I'm curious to know if anyone has ever contacted the National Allotment Society if they have been unhappy with a committee decision, and whether they have been any good in dealing with it?
    I am having an issue at the moment and I don't wish to delve any deeper at this time, but I need to know my options in case it needs to go to arbitration.

    My niece and her husband are involved with the managing/running of some allotments up in Birmingham. If you care to pm me, I'll let you have their contact phone number, names etc if you would like a chat with them. They're both retired, so have some time to help available ( that at least is my theory )

    Hmmm, yes, but it's probably worth getting first hand testimonies before embarking on such a course.
    Nowadays a lot of organisations won't speak to you until they have all your personal information, and then once you hand it over there is no guarantee they will be any good at helping with your problem. My time is precious to me.

    I have personal experience of many government organisations that are worse than terrible and not worth their salt. I could give examples, but only for the purposes of defending my point of view and perhaps that's not worth doing here just for the sake of it.

    Totally confused why you bothered to ask the question then.

    Can we guess the issue?

    1. Not being able to sell your produce from your plot
    2. Other plot holders using Glyphosate
    3. the footings for your greenhouse are not temporary and you have to remove it.

    You seem to want to share something or have taken a dislike to my opinion?
    Do you work for the government?
