Britons prefer to have an allotment than a sports car, survey finds

Britons prefer to have an allotment than a sports car, a survey has found.

Asked to choose the ‘top goals’ in life, it was among the three most popular.

The result, from a poll of 2,000 adults, echoes the 1970s sitcom The Good Life, starring Richard Briers and Felicity Kendal as Tom and Barbara Good, who give up the rat race to grow their own food and become self-sufficient.

The popularity of allotments has soared, with more than 100,000 Britons on a waiting list for one.

The study by green energy firm Bulb found the top three choices were using renewable energy, picked by 25 per cent; lowering carbon footprint (also 25 per cent); and having an allotment (24 per cent). Buying a sports car came in at number 13, chosen by just six per cent.

A Bulb spokesman said ‘eco-conscious’ lifestyles were in vogue, adding: ‘One in five looked at things very differently compared to five years ago, when cars were considered a top priority.’
