Last week we found ourselves beside the sea. Not ones to go an autumn getaway, we went on a trip to Southport for the RHS [Royal Horticultural Society] award ceremony. Bellies full with roast dinner, surrounded by hundreds of other North West community growing projects (who we had to fight over gravy and the last roast potatoes with) we waited nervously as the judges read out the lists of many different awards. Much to our delight, this year we took away the cup for the Best Small Neighbourhood project in the North West and we went away with another Level 5 Outstanding certificate.
A great big high five to everybody who has contributed and participated in any way in the allotment- this is a marvellous achievement and us diggers are P.R.O.U.D. (and we especially enjoyed the chocolate mints for dessert).
