EVENTS

Bottles and Jars Competition - A Double Celebration

Our inaugural ‘Bottles and Jars’ competition took place on Saturday 13th November. Despite the rather damp and drizzly weather conditions, much fun was had by all who gathered at the Allotments HQ, plot 28.  The event became a double celebration as the HQ shed - which was not there at the beginning of the day – was standing proud by midday – and was also blessed by Reverend Chris Engelsen.  The HQ shed was the centre stage for the Reverend to announce the winners in our three categories: ‘Pickles, Chutneys, and Savoury Dips’; ‘Sweet Jams’ and finally, ’Booze and Brews’.

The winners were decided by a closed public vote!  Armed with crackers, knife and a compostable cup, the 20 or so folk in attendance sampled the wares and voted for their favourite in each category.  And when the voting tins were cracked opened and votes counted, the results were in!  Each of the winners will have their names engraved on individual brass plaques and to be added to the HQ’s Wall of Fame; three beautiful hand-made wooden boards (made by a tenant from plot 48).  We hope that their names will be the first of many…. So if you’d like to see your name there too, start thinking about your growing plans and recipes for next year’s comp.  More details about the practical plans for using plot 28 and our HQ shed will follow in the new year.
