Dith went to collect the key for the plot yesterday afternoon.
We have been told that we will have to attend a committee meeting of the Allotment Association on Sunday morning. There has been an objection to our use of the plot for our project. It seems that when they have tried to do this sort of thing before one member has always objected and garnered enough support to block such a proposal.
We're told that the meeting should be a formality as there should be sufficient support to get it through on this occasion. One of the things we need to do is to reassure the other members that we will not be bringing "undesirable" elements onto the site, or setting it up as a target for them.
We have decided that we will therefore restrict this plot to the local MIND users and, possibly, local youth as well. Whatever happens we do not want to alienate or upset current users by our actions.
We'd therefore ask that you pray for guidance on what we need to say and for God to remove any barriers that may stand in our way.
