Egremont Town Council owns two allotment sites at East Road and Bridgend as well as managing the Sandholes site on behalf of Copeland Borough Council. Every year we hold a competition where an independent judge visits all the sites and selects those allotments deemed to be the best. There is many ways this is done from those allotments most improved, to quality and variety of crops and much more.
The 2021 winners are:
1st – Stan, Elaine and Julie Wright
2nd – Andrew Johnstone
3rd – Alan Kirkbride
1st -Steven Shutt
2nd- Callum Scott
3rd- Ian Hurst
2nd -Michael Donnelly
3rd- Jim Hardman
John Killip, a past Town Councillor and avid allotment tenant donated a cup which is awarded annually to the best overall allotment across the three sites.
The 2021 John Killip Winner was Steven Shutt
