Fence update – 5th December 2019

We are delighted to see that the fence at Oxford Spires Academy has been extended to go down the entire length of the hedge bordering our site.

And the winners are…. Ellen and Etienne

Our warmest congratulations go to Ellen and Etienne (Plot A25b) who have won the coveted “Best Under-35 Allotment of the Year” award at the Oxford and District Federation of Allotments Associations awards’ evening. This is in competition with all of the other allotment associations in the City of Oxford. Ellen received the shield at the West Oxford Allotments on 28th October.

Other entries included Cliff and Annie who were awarded a certificate and were highly commended. The category in which they were entered is shrouded in mystery.

James and Christine were also awarded a certificate and were highly commended in the “Newcomers” category.

Barracks Lane Allotments came a creditable fourth overall.
