Congratulations to Louise Renny, Mike Mason and their team of helpers who set up and manned the Allotment Stand.
For the fourth consecutive year, the team secured a Large Gold Medal with the theme “Then and Now” – tying in with the 175th Anniversary of the Romsey Show Society. Thanks to the detailed research by our treasurer, Robert Le Grice, an illustrated potted history of the allotments was displayed which was well received. For example, there on the stand was a rental agreement circa 1880’s alongside the Rules today.
As in previous years, the fruit and vegetables kindly donated by members were well displayed in boxes, trugs and the centrepiece a miniature wheelbarrow. Where possible, each variety was labelled – this always pleases the judge.
