About the Book

The allotment holders had gathered up this year’s dead, woody plants, which would not rapidly rot down, to burn in a bonfire. Otherwise, plant diseases could infect the next year’s crop. The holders were present in shifts to ensure that the fire did not get out of control and spread. The Pumpkin-Easies also kept a vigil to watch the fire to make sure their home, the Great Pumpkin was not set on fire by falling rockets. Another great fire in London was Grenfell, in June 2017 due to inflammable cladding. The scandal become heightened when it was realised that thousands of other flats had defective cladding. Almost 4 years later, little seems to change as yet another fire breaks out because of the cladding. As the residents said, “Enough is enough.” 10% of the profits of this work will go to Grenfell survivors and another 10% to help around four million leaseholders many of whom still need to have their cladding removed and to find the money to pay for it.
