The October Celebration and Our AGM

Many thanks to everyone who contributed to making the October Celebration afternoon such a success. Our stalls did really well, We had a wonderful selection of delicious cakes and scones to go with our tea  and the friendly atmosphere was marked by plenty of lively allotment chat.


Our thanks to Bill Peebles, Dean of the Incorporation of Gardeners, who presented the New Plotholders Awards this year. Sarah Henry, who organised the judging for the awards, told the audience that visiting the plots had been inspirational.
