The winners of this year’s Warwick allotment competition have recently received their trophies at an official awards evening.
Allotment holders and their guests gathered in the Ballroom at The Courthouse on September 4 for the Awards Evening and AGM.
The winners were announced back in July.
Plot holders from across the Percy Estate, Canalside, Railwayside and Cape Housing allotments entered.
The plots were judged on a number of different criteria including the range and quality of fruit and vegetables grown, weed control, special features and overall impression, and environmental awareness and sustainability.
The awards and certificates were presented by the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Dave Skinner, and included new trophies for the winners of Overall Best Newcomer and Overall Winners.
There were first, second and third places for each site as well as best newcomers and highly commended plots.
Warwick Town Council would like to thank their longstanding judge, Andrew Caine, for spending a very hot Saturday in late June touring each site and judging each competitive plot.
Appreciation was also given to the site representatives who showed the judge around and the councillors who joined the judging tour.
The allotment award evening enables plot holders from across Warwick to meet, share, celebrate and encourage each other.
Cllr John Sullivan, chair of Warwick Town Council Allotments Committee said: “Our allotment tenants do a sterling job tending their plots which are a valuable form of exercise, both physically and mentally.
"There is so much variation, and our plot holders are to be commended on their efforts year-round.”
