ANOTHER EJGHT ACRES Taken Over by Sketty Allotments Society. The Sketty Allotments Society, Ltd., has taken on an additional acres at Sketty Green, and ie open to le nbout 50 plots. The Society was registered about five months ago, after a very successful season had been experienced as a result of mutual co-operation. It is unnecessary for us to deal with tin ,activitie.s of this society for, so far as the inhabitants of the Sketty district are con- cerned, it has established a reputation for good work and energetic application. We would, however, point out that Sir Chas. Bathurst, M.P., spejaking to farmers at Swansea, on Saturday, emphasised the importance of the Allotment and, in effect, said that allotment-holders were doing a very "big bit" to win the war. For tho past year, thanks to the endeavours of societies like that existing at Sketty, Gla- morgan held the record for allotments. We feel confident that Sketty will do its share again this year.
