The Executive Committee have spent considerable time discussing the status of this years Allotment Competition. As things stand access to the allotments is allowed in line with Government Covid19 Guidelines, as part of the exercise allowable during the current emergency.
However, we have to take into account that some plot holders, the elderly and those considered to be at risk, have been advised to stay at home. Also access to supplies from garden centres etc. have been restricted for many.
Given the uncertainty of the situation the Executive have decided to delay a decision on running this years competition, for a couple more weeks. We remain committed to running the competition at some time during 2020, all being well. If the competition cannot be run along the usual timetable, we will examine ways in which a later competition, modified to take account of being held later in the growing season could be held.
