We should fight this ban

What is the world coming too.

Once again we find our local council banning a pleasure that has been enjoyed by hundreds for many, many years.

It has been tradition to keep livestock on allotments since the movement started.

Why should the allotment holders have to give up this tradition just to appease people moving into their posh new houses?

I have no connection to any holder and have no objection to people having new property.

What I object to is anybody moving to an area and then trying to change their neighbours’ way of life.

Did they not check the area before they moved? If not, well that is their fault and they should have to put up with the consequences.

Hemsworth Town council should represent ALL townpeople not just a select few.

Fight this ban and, if required, get a new council.
