Wakefield MDC Allotments Competition

Entry forms must be in by
22nd June 2007.

The Competition is open to all tenants of allotment sites managed by City of Wakefield Metropolitan District Council. For the purpose of the Competition, the District will be divided into areas.

First, Second and Third prizes will be awarded for each area, and prizes will also be awarded for Senior Citizens.

Cleanliness and tidiness, crop husbandry and rotation, and quality of yield will be the criteria used to judge the Competition.

There is a category for newcomers i.e. those who took on a plot after 1 April 2006 and I am sure we have quite a few of you in with a good chance of a prize in this category. So go for it! Who knows - this time next year we could be a prize winning site!!!

    Maybe we could disguise them as bushes, then the kids won't be able to find them to fine them!
