George details his daily routine on the allotment site: arriving at 6am, checking the store and toilets, litter-picking and switching the water on or off.
Hester expounds her varied role as the secretary of Ward End Gardeners Association, overseeing five allotment sites.
Josie describes the rules and regulations on allotments in the past, enforced by the ‘strong minded little men’ from the city council.
The Uplands committee describe their site: 38 acres with 400+ plots. The River Tame runs through it but, unfortunately, it’s very polluted.
Karen and Debbie acknowledge the vandalism on the Gospel Lane site, but agree that the allotment community help each other in the face of adversity.
