Local allotment show
I was invited last month to the New Sands Allotment Show in Swalwell, Gateshead, last month. I took along my cameras and have just got round to editing the video I filmed whilst there.
Allotmenteers have helped maintain flower beds in Swalwell and some work has been done this week.
I was the judge at the show last year. I was quite pleased that this year they had someone else to do the judging simply because one of the entries contained duck eggs. Only one person on the site has ducks, and they were hatched by me! As the judge is not meant to know whose entry is whose, I would have been in a difficult situation if I had been doing the judging!
Funds raised by the sale of produce went to the Swalwell Ciommunity Group.
