barbecue and competitions

The annual barbecue and competitions will take place this year on Sunday, August 6, a couple of weeks later than in previous years to avoid any clash with Regatta Week events.

All plot holders and their families are welcome.

As usual the competition categories are: best full plot; best half plot; largest root of potato; longest stick of rhubarb; Sunday lunch (two each of five different vegetables on a plate including potato); largest strawberry; bunch of flowers; funniest/largest vegetable.

The  entry fee  is £2.

The entry form can be found here (Competition entry form2).  Please give your completed form and entry fee to any committee member. Some printed forms will be available by the shed in the main car park for members who do not have their own printer.

Judging of the plots will take place on Tuesday, July 25 from 6pm. Other categories will be judged on the day.

The closing date for the plot categories is Tuesday, July 11.



Lost Hoe

Chris, on plot 19 (Allotment plot map) has lost a Jembie which looks like a Chillington hoe or Dutch hoe. He brought it back from Kenya so it has sentimental value for him. If you happen to come across it please contact Chris or email Pearl at

*Chris and the Jembie have now been reunited!

Tomato plants


These tomato plants are on offer free of charge. If you want any, please help yourself.

You will find them beside the greenhouse on Plot 15 (Allotment plot map ).  Please do not take the trays.

If you have any surplus plants or equipment which you are willing to give away or if you are in search of any allotment-related items please email so they can be featured on this site.
