Pictured are Sue Hallam and her partner, Peter, holding the trophy for Plot 4C – the best allotment on Hareham Gardens in 2022. Sue and Peter win a year at their plot rent free.
The independent judges commented: “Our first place allotment ticked every box for us. It showed what can be achieved in a short time by putting the work in. It also highlights that a small plot can provide all the fresh food to feed a family. We did not feel there would be much waste from this allotment. The overall impression was one of a labour of love.”
There were four other winners, three of whom have only had their plots for one year
- Joint second place: Plots 57A and 59
- Highly commended for the obvious amount of time and effort they have put in over the past year: Plots 7 and 24A.
