With a flurry of intense activity, the Council created 20 allotments on the corner of Calles Alemania and Inglaterra. When we inquired about this, Pam and I were told that 11 people had shown interest in renting an allotment to grow produce on.
Since then, there has been no activity on the land and the weeds have taken over.
Speaking to one of my neighbours the other day, he said that he'd previously rented an allotment in England and had put his name down for one of the allotments here. His understanding was that there was an issue formalising a contract with the water company.
Clearly, nothing useful will grow on the allotments without a supply of water. By the time this is sorted out, they will need to clear the land again before planting any crops.
