Best Allotment Competition 2017 was the best one ever! Thank you for all that attended to this years event, find out more and who the winners were!
Thanks to all those who attended, this years competition was a great success and one of the highest turns outs I have seen, so thanks to all those that came and supported the hard work of the HPAA commitee, in particular, Julia East and Margret Hastings, Julie Ruzbridge who put in so much hard work with the lovely food, Drew Price & Simon Read for their great efforts tidying up the sites and general helpfulness on the day, The Scouts and Guides for their help laying on Coffee and Teas and agaib for all those that supported the event particularly for Carlie Mayes for her Bees and Honey display and last but no means least Gerald Vale from the National Vegetable Society for his great job as judge and talk afterwards. Thank you all
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.
