Social Evening 2017

We had a wonderful evening at the Leeds & District Allotment Gardeners Social.

Cllr Jane Dowson, Lord Mayor of Leeds was there to present awards to winners of the Leeds Allotment Competition. 

Cllr Jane Dowson’s introduction

There was a lovely buffet and a bar, and also a tombola and an auction of items which raised £450 for the charity Perennial.  The highlight of the auction was a two night stay at Witton Castle.

Nick Smith, Director of the Harrogate Flower Show gave a talk on ‘behind the scenes at the Flower Shows’.


A very good night was had by all.
