Please see the joint statement issued by the Crewe Town Allotment Federation and Town Council Leader Kevin Hickson.
"The Crewe Town Allotment Federation and the Town Council welcome the statements of support from those allotment sites in Crewe who have already expressed their long term commitment to the Federation. They are already seeing the benefits of being in a larger entity which can make best use of the considerable investment that the Town Council has committed. Being part of a Federation allows pooling of resources to purchase expensive equipment, share best practice and learn from each other.
The Town Council has said it wants to have the best allotments in the North West and the Federation is starting to turn that into reality. The Federation is a democratic institution, run by the allotments themselves and we encourage any allotment holder who wants to know more to get in touch."
Expressions of Support
Claughton Avenue Site
Speaking for myself, I don't know how the Claughton Avenue allotment could have continued without the impetus and support of the Federation and I do think I speak for our committee when I say that we whole heartily support your very selfless efforts in getting us "up and running". This has been quite a learning curve for all concerned and without your intervention I think we may still be chasing our tails. You have my full support.
Chair (Claughton Ave)
I like being in the Federation and believe all of my committee colleagues feel the same way.
Secretary (Claughton Ave)
Alton Street Allotment Site
I want to say that you have the full support of Alton Street Allotments we are more than happy to belong to the Federation, the things you have achieved since you took over are amazing. Anything we can do to help please let us know.
Manor Way Allotment Site
I have discussed this matter with the plot holders of the Manor Way site and I know that all tenants fully support the concept and decisions of the Federation, and confirm that Manor Way allotment Association would wish to remain as a member and be part of the Federation.
Chairman (Manor Way)
Brookhouse Allotment Site
On behalf of my tenants I wholly support the decision and management styles of the Federation. I firmly stand by the decision made at our last Federation meeting that we will be happy to remain a part of the federation.
