Market gardeners 2017

Our 3rd year of promoting Nuneaton Allotments and grow your own was another success.

We raised £175 from the raffle and donations for the Mayor’s Appeal, which is  over twice as much as previous years, an amazing total.

The deputy mayor and mayoress, Councillor Christopher Watkins, and his wife Collette, judged the hampers for the competition.


All thanks to the many volunteers who manned the stall and ‘guided’ (arm-twisted) the lovely generous visitors to the market to our allotment stall to part with a £1 for a raffle ticket, and thanks to those allotment associations who produced such great hampers, they made a great show.

Results of hamper competition: 1st – Ryder’s Hill, 2nd – Little Hoarstone, 3rd – College St


With many thanks to: Gail, Martyn, Chris, Sue, Yvonne, Roger, Santosh, Garry, David, Debbie, Fay, Ben, Sharon, Steve, Alasdair, Devon for making the day brilliant.
