Ruth petitionsfor started this petition to Bradford City Council

Hi,

There are 91 people on the waiting list for an allotment in Bowling Park Allotments. I'd like to see the land on the corner of Brompton Avenue and Flockton Road, next to the swimming pool, be released for allotments. It could make perhaps 9 or 12 small lots. We don't need more houses built there. People need space to grow their own produce. Perhaps you're already on the waiting list? Or, like me, you've not added your name to the list because you think it will take years to get one?

Lets start somewhere. Would you add your name to the petition which I'll send to the council and our local councillor when we've got a reasonable number of signatures? 

The last year has highlighted the need to get out into green space. Allotments provide safe community with space and fresh air, and provide exercise to the residents working on them. They can improve biodiversity by providing plants and flowers which bees, which are now endangered, and other insects, can benefit from (provided the land isn't dowsed in chemicals). 

Thanks for reading and I hope you'll back this request to the council. 

Ruth, a resident of East Bowling and lover of nature, food, community and life.
