The winners of Whittlesey’s annual ‘best kept allotment awards’ were announced by the town council.
Peter Bellamy was awarded first place, Ernie Cross was the runner-up and Robin Hailstone came third.
Mayor of Whittlesey, Cllr David Mason, presented the recipients the certificates and main award. He said the award winners are decided over a period of time throughout the year.
“It’s not done on a random basis or a one off visit. Kay Mayor and her team visit each one - and their are 100 on this site - and score them accordingly.
“Being a former allotment holder myself, I know that a lot of hard work goes in to maintaining an allotment.

The mayor congratulated the winners and thanked the town council projects committee and Gill Lawrence who was the independent judge.
