Petworth allotment trouble

SEVEN allotment holders in Petworth are to be served a month’s notice by the town council.

Richard Chandler, chair of the council’s Open Spaces committee, said: “Some allotments are in a poor condition and are not being looked after. It was agreed at the previous committee meeting that seven of them were in such a bad position that they should be served a notice to quit.”

Town clerk Jean Huggett said are four people on the waiting list, who should receive an offer of an allotment in the near future.
