Whittlesey came together to mark this year’s allotment awards while helping raise funds for charity.
Town mayor Cllr David Mason alongside mayoress Ann Mason and judge Gill Lawrence were on hand at the awards ceremony on Saturday, October 9.
Michael and Carol Stapley claimed top prize, Paul Anthony was runner-up while Ewelina Michalak, Tom Cocksedge and Kay Evans won the highly commended awards.
Each allotment is judged on how well-maintained it is, as well as the variety of products being grown and cleanliness.
*Meanwhile, a cheque for £250 was handed to Cllr Mason by Big Bash event organiser Robert Windle for the mayor’s charities.
The cheque was part of the Big Bash event last month.
Rui Chamberlain, who spent the day photographing the event, also donated £25 to the charity.
