Trophies for Allum Lane allotment holders presented by Borehamwood town council
Two allotment holders have been recognised for their prize vegetables and tidy plots.
The Allotment Prize Awards for the Allum Lane site were awarded at a full council meeting of Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council at Fairway Hall last night.
Anthony Cox was awarded the trophy for the best grown allotment and Auxilia V Nhavira received one for the best kept plot.
The prizes were presented by the chairman and vice chairman of the environment and planning committee Farida Turner and Graeme Franklin.
In presenting the prizes, Cllr Turner thanked Mr Cox and the plot holders for their hard work and congratulated them on the volume, variety and quality of their produce.
She added: “Mr Cox has given so many years service to the allotment and done so much work to make sure it stays looking beautiful.”
Cllr Franklin, presenting the best kept prize, commented that the ingenuity of Mrs Nhavira in maximising the space available for cultivation in such a neat and orderly fashion was a feat of “gardening genius”.
Both winners were awarded £25 vouchers to spend on gardening items.
Town clerk Huw Jones said the council had followed through on a programme to rejuvenate the allotments, and plot occupancy has risen from five to six to over 40.
He added: “The council operates a waiting list system for prospective tenants and welcomes applications for both this and the Melrose Avenue site.
