Awards for the best kept allotments in Uckfield were distributed on Monday by the town council.
Every year the council’s plots are judged by representatives of the council and an independent horticultural professional. Visits are unannounced to ensure allotment holders do not tidy up just for the judging.
Results: Best large allotment – Mr I. Wickens; best small allotment – Mrs H. Berry.
Site winners: Bell Lane, large plot – Mr A. Huxley; small – Mr C. Coleman; Bird-in-Eye, large – Mrs S. Washington; small, Mr. S. Ward; Framfield Road, east, large – Mr and Mrs P. Manning; small – Mrs H. Berry; Framfield Road west, large – Mr I. Wickens; small – Mr A. Ford; Ridgewood, large, Mrs P. Renne; small – Ms A Butler and Mr P. Gillett; West Park, small – Mr and Mrs J.
