The green-fingered competition was set up earlier this year to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations and allotment holders have been working hard to cultivate their plots and their crops.

TODAY IS THE BIG DAY – Who has won?

The Presentations
There are two categories in the competition and Whitchurch Town Council will be announcing the winners at 12.00pm.
The presentation of the awards will take place adjacent to the allotment entrance in The Weir.


The Prizes
Jody Scheckter, owner of Laverstoke Park Farms and former F1 motor racing champion, will be presenting the first prize of a £100 hamper of produce from his farm. Geoff Knappett will present a £50 gardening voucher for the best newcomer on behalf of the Newbury Building Society.
Local MP Sir George Young will also be attending to hand out certificates and rosettes to the winners.

The categories are:
Champion ‘Best kept allotment’ holder 2012
