Simply the best

Are you proud of your plot but too modest to enter it for the best plot of the year competition?

Well this year, after a long discussion at the AGM, the format of the competition is changing so people won’t have to put their plots forward for the title themselves.

Instead, all of our plots will be considered.

After preliminary inspections our judge, Denis Vickers, will visit the site to make the final decision on the winners of the Best Half Plot and Best Full Plot.

He will be carrying out the judging on Monday, July 17. 

Entry to all the other competition categories will be exactly the same as usual. Full details to come later.

All the results will be announced at the summer barbecue on Sunday, July 23.

Good luck everyone! May the best plot win!


Please slow down

Just a gentle reminder that the speed limit at the allotments is 5mph.

Please make sure that you keep below that speed for safety reasons and out of consideration for people whose plots are alongside the site’s roads.
