My name is Ruth Paris and my allotment, bizarrely, is on a roundabout! Not the municipal kind you may be imagining :0) – but one large enough to contain a dozen allotments, tucked away behind mature trees and a five bar gate. Conveniently, the roundabout is also home to a very nice pub, the Shepherd & Flock.
I also have a garden, which I love, which is an oasis for home and full of flowers. The allotment is where I grow vegetables, herbs, fruit and even more flowers (just can’t help myself!)
I’m an executive coach by profession and work a lot from home, so going to the allotment is also an escape from the day job.
