At a Town Council meeting at the end of September, awards were presented to the winners of the Ringwood 2017 Allotment Competition.
The judging undertaken once again by members of Ringwood Garden Club. Their representative, Robin Atack, reported that the Garden Club had been judging this competition for many years and had refined the judging criteria over the years to make it fair for all.
Judging was a daunting task, with 153 plots to view, ranging from 100 to 500 square metres. There was a high standard amongst the best plots, some of which the judges said they would have been proud to own themselves. The overall winner’s plot was exceptional and immaculate, scoring 94%.
Mr Atack congratulated all the winners, and encouraged them to keep up the good work.
