Last Years Potato competition 2020
The winner of 2020’s competition was Tim Shepherd, with a enormous harvest weighing 3lbs 13 oz! The prized packet of crisps was donated to the Food Bank instead of being presented to Tim as meetings were suspended. Close runner-up was Peter Brown with a yield of 3lbs 8 3/4 oz. Peter’s consolation was that he had a well deserved Bangers & Mash supper. Thank you to everyone who competed and sent in their photos!

Our President, Sir Nicolas Bevan says, ” I am greatly impressed by the quality of entries to our virtual Spring Show and I congratulate all those who sent in their photographs. At this time of anxiety and sadness our gardens can be a source of consolation and diversion and provide an outlet for our energies. I encourage all our members to carry on gardening and I look forward to the time when we can meet together again.”
The winner of Best in Show photograph is 10A, sent in by Faith. Congratulations! Here it is:

CABAHS has traditionally helped to support Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice over many years. Usually, we donate two months of our Plant Sales Table proceeds to the Hospice but this year we invited donations through this page, in celebration of successfully holding our first online Spring Show.
