Readers might recall an update last summer when it looked promising that the Popesfield allotments will be ready before the 2019 season.
It seems that the application to Thames Water was finally submitted on 21st March 2019 and no date has been provided. Ealing Council’s parks team is now chasing for a date to get the water connection.
Residents interested in a plot can email firstname.lastname@example.org to register an interest and be put on the waiting list (there are still a few spaces). There will be c.40 plots and the site is located behind houses between Gunnersbury Avenue, Baronsmede and Aspen Close.
There is still a debate whether it is Popesfield or Popefield. No one has yet unearthed the correct version. Anyone with some knowledge, please step forward!
