Sarisbury Green Plotholder wins Best in Show
Abigail Harrison, pictured, won St. Mary's Church Reverend Nicky-Sue's Favourite Exhibit at the recent Warsash Village Garden Show. Abigail also won Best in Show for her beautiful dahlias. Both Abigail and Robin Green, Site Manager, manned a stall for the Western Wards Allotment Association.
This was a very well attended event and a large collection of exhibits displayed including flowers, vegetables, cakes and baking, photographic and hand made exhibits. Exhibits were submitted by the Horticultural Society members, Warsash Allotment members and Sarisbury Allotment members.
Of the exhibits submitted by Sarisbury Allotment Site for the first year at this show, Abigail 31B won a first prize and the Cup for 'Best In Show' for her Dahlia's exhibit. In vegetable categories, Pam Barber 34B won 2 x 1st prizes and 2 x 2nd prizes, the Sarisbury Junior School 32A won 2 x 1st prizes and 2 x Highly Commended and Robin Green 32B won 1 x 2nd prize and 2 x Highly Commended.
Robin also reported: "You will also be pleased to note that some Sarisbury Allotment Plot holders submitted entries at the Sarisbury Horticultural Society Annual Show on 11th August and walked away with a number of 1st prizes. The prize winners notably include the Junior School (again!) who achieved 4 x 1st Prizes and 1 x 2nd prize for vegetables. An excellent achievement to add to their 1st prize at the Curdridge Show. They really are showing the way forward with their produce despite having been established for such a short time. It was subject of a lot of local positive comment. In addition, John and Pam Barber (Plots 34/35B) won a 1st Prize for their 'cabbages' entry and Lucy Swanbrook (Plot 6B) won the Cup for best garden display".
STOP PRESS: We have just heard that Sarisbury Junior School have been awarded a Silver prize in this year's Fareham in Bloom competition. Well done to you all and hope you will go for Gold in 2019!
