THE ridiculous state of affairs between allotment holder Michael Rock and Hastings Borough Council highlights one of the many things that is wrong in today’s society, namely that individuals feel they have the right to do whatever they like and all rules are for other people.
An allotment is for growing vegetables. If Mr Rock is ‘bored’ (his word) by growing them perhaps he should give serious thought to giving up his allotment and letting others get less bored.
There are many hundreds of people, myself included, waiting for an allotment and the chance to grow vegetables, to have this man growing 11 trees and a personal lawn is unacceptable.
