Best Allotment Competition 2016! - 2nd July 2016 Starting at 11.30amNew Format This Year - July 2nd 2016 Starting 11.30am New Site

 We are changing things up a little year and focassing on getting more members involved this year.  Gone is the need to grow crops just for the competition, it is all about keeping a tidy productive plot now with extra points awarded for enviromental features like; water conservation, growing for bees, creating widlife areas to attract helpful bugs and animal life.  Plus there is a Best Dressed Scarcrow for under 16's with prizes for all that enter.
