Newbury Allotment Award Winners 2017

Following allotment visits at Newbury’s six allotment sites by Councillors earlier in the year, Newbury Town Council presented awards to tenants who were judged to have kept the best plots on each site. This year 20 awards were given out, including ‘Best Newcomer’, ‘Best Plots’, ‘Best Schools Plot’ and ‘Best Site Overall’.

A trophy was presented to John Hatchman and Chris Lawrence, Stewards at our Southby’s Allotment Site, after they were judged to be the best site overall. The competition was very close but the Southby’s site, off Greenham Road,was judged to be marginally ahead of the other five sites, which were all highly rated.

An award was also given to Falkland Primary School who tend a plot at Wash Common.

Cllr Adrian Edwards, Leader of the Council said: “It’s such a pleasure visiting our allotment sites and judging the awards. There are over 500 plots in Newbury, ranging from large to small, with a variety of tenants, from people who have had a plot for years to newcomers and new families to the site who are so enthusiastic”.

He continued, “We do have some vacancies at our sites so if anyone is interested in seeing how they can benefit from growing their own produce and enjoying the fresh air, please do contact our Community Services Team on 01635 35486”.
