Allotment Competition 2010
The deadline for nominations for the 2010 Best Plot competition is 30th June.
Now we know that some of you may not like the idea of putting yourself forward by displaying a number on your plot and others of you may want to nominate a neighbour but you haven't had the chance to ask them if they mind or not. Well don't worry about it too much. A council insider has told us that once the list of nominations has been compiled the council will give all the nominated plotholders a bell to check that they are ok to be included and to give them the opportunity to pull out. So you can nominate with impunity. You can nominate any two plots you like, and it is perfectly ok for you to nominate yourself. I know for certain that some plotholders have already done this. Frankly the whole competition is just for fun so if you want to be involved nominating yourself is absolutely fine.
So just to remind you. You can nominate 2 plots. All you need to do is write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. On this email list the allotment site and 2 plot numbers you want to nominate. You can also say why you nominated them if you like, and you can add your name and site too. You don't have to put your name and your site, so this means that nominating is not restricted to plotholders.
On Judith Ward's poster, pictured above, she has written that she has more information on the judging criteria. This hasn't been shared with the association, but as soon as we find it out we will post it here.
Good luck to you all.
