Local community activist Sue Ospreay called on the Leader of the Council, Councillor Damian White to please give them the land next to the Rainham allotments that was promised to them two years ago.
In response, Councillor Damian White is going to visit the area and chat with Sue and other members of the allotment about the amazing work they are doing there for the community and the issue of the land next door to them.
Sue told the Havering Daily: “The field next to the allotments is landlocked and no good for anyone else. It was promised to us ages ago and now I am calling on the Leader of the Council to please hand it over to us so we can put it to good use.”
Sue and her colleagues at the allotment have worked tirelessly to make the allotments a great community base for locals.
She continued: “There is a fantastic community spirit here, we do incredible amounts of work with locals.
“Monday’s we have a nursery that come and visit, Tuesday we have an autistic group, we run a gardening club, we have many local schools visit us. This really is the place to be, it is great not just for your physical health but for your mental health as well.
“We are the only place in Havering to have been entered for the Britain in Bloom awards after winning the London in Bloom. We are also preparing a very special VE Day celebrations that will be shown virtually to our community.”
Sue is a fantastic community champion who dedicates her time working on endlessly projects to make her community better.
She finished: “Please Councillor White give us this land, we will put it to good use for the local community. I am overjoyed that he is going to come and visit us here and see all the work we do for ourselves.”
