Allotment presentation

The Watnall Allotments and Gardens Association held its annual show at the end of last month.

Norman Pyart from Newthorpe was awarded most points in show and best allotment and Gordon Jarrett won three trophies for getting the most points in the leek and vegetable sections.

Chairman of Greasley Parish Council Christine Bird presented the awards and gave the association a cheque to contribute toward group funds.

Association secretary Roy Potter said Cllr Bird was ‘highly impressed’ with the standard of the allotments.

The award ceremony was held at the Royal Oak, Watnall.

An auction of surplus produce was held at the end.
