About fifty years ago our allotment society helped organise and took part in a summer vegetable show and competition
held at Lyonsdown Hall in Lyonsdown Road, New Barnet.
We thought it would be a nice idea to resurrect this show and will start off this year holding it on the allotment site at Clifford Road.

There will be all the usual classes to enter in the show. Vegetables, flowers, jam, chutney, baking, children’s classes etc. etc.
There will even be a photography competition to be judged by a local professional photographer.

Refreshments will also be available with a ‘homemade’ theme.

Whereas exhibitors will be New Barnet Allotment Society members only, the Summer Show will be open to all.

If you would like to exhibit or offer any help with the organising of the event please contact Terry Cheetham on 020 8447 0279

A great success, raising £2500 for local charities…….

The weather and the overwhelming participation of both public and allotmenteers made this a memorable occasion and we hope to now make this an annual event.
