Congratulations to this year’s Allotment Competition Winners
Judged Best Recreation Ground Allotment: Alf Shepherd
Runner up: Martin Earp
Judged Best Temple Lane Allotment: Terry Ward
Runner up: Viv Taylor
This year, because the general state of the two allotments sites has vastly improved, Dave Goodall, our allotments judge, suggested we present ‘runner up certificates’ at both the Capel Rec site and Temple Lane.
The Society has been delighted to be able to do this in recognition of all the effort that has been put into cultivating what is ultimately pretty heavy clay soil in need of constant attention most of the year round.
Judging is based on general cleanliness and cropping of the allotment.
Despite the lack of rainfall most of the crops growing were in good condition and the ground was relatively weed free.
