A letter from the Council

No, not one of those "mucky plot" letters. A letter encouraging us all to use water sparingly. It was raining as the postman delivered it!

And actually I think it's a bit of a cheek. I pay for the chuffing water! Last year I used the hosepipe (a 50 meter hosepipe because the tap is so far away; that's a long hosepipe) just the once. The year before I used it just the once. But I pay the same for it regardless of how little water I use. Pah!

Now if the Council turned their attention to culling pigeons I'd be out there cheering them on.

There's no need for the 'mucky plot' comment ;>) Like you I'd like to know who uses so much water, think I've used it 3 times in almost 4 years for the two plots

Mmm I'm not enamoured with our council either but for different reasons.

We had a leak on our plot recently and they turned the water off !!!

It's the first season that I've actively watered and I have to say I've noticed a positive difference.

Hey while we're all moaning, don't forget that we only get water for 6 months too !
