bizarre situation- what would you do?
Hi All I need some advice on a bizarre situation on my allotment.I have been on a list for an additional plot for 18mths-I have half plot at moment. Recently a qtr plot next to mine came up and to my horror was offered to a newcomer as the chair wants newcomers to be given first choice. Fortunately when I made a fuss I was given the adjoining plot. However now it transpires the previous owner NEVER gave it up but as he hadn't paid or maintained it, steward decided it was available. Having had the plot for 4 weeks have paid and worked extremely hard done some planting etc-now steward wants it back! because the previous owner has recently paid and has been seen working on the plot! I'm really upset- what would you do? The committee has rules but tend to do their own thing. I shan't be going to the allotment this w/end-I might say thing I may regret!!
