Petition to protect the allotments on Sandown Road, Sandwich

The allotments on Sandown Rd, in Sandwich are under threat. 

A group of concerned Sandwich residents have launched a petition to Dover District and Sandwich Town Councils to prevent the loss of the allotments which have been used since the First World war.

Nationally allotments are under  threat as local authorities see as a short cut to resolving funding issues - missing the vital role they play in providing skills, local food and the well-being of the community & individuals.  There are long waiting lists for all allotments locally - we need more not less of them.
