12 June 2020CANCELLED: BEST KEPT HORTICULTURAL ALLOTMENT COMPETITION 2020
THIS TIME last year, we were preparing for the judging of the first best kept allotment by two independent adjudicators. The Northumbria in Bloom regional competition for 2020 has already been cancelled, so following this example and this year's local allotment competition has been cancelled due to the on-going issues with Coronavirus. We know how much hard work many allotment holders have already put in and how much fun the competition brought to people last year, but the health and well-being of the judges, gardeners, and community is the most important thing. It is deeply regrettable having to take this decision and this will be disappointing for all concerned but hopefully we will all bounce back stronger than ever next year.
