ST JULIANS Allotment plotholders, their family and friends, packed out Newport Indoor Bowls Club in the Glebelands on Sunday for the association’s second annual Christmas lunch.
The event, which was organised by Anne Spruce and Meryl Jones, was a chance for a pre-Christmas catch-up and to recognise the achievements of some of the allotment’s newest recruits.
In addition to thanking Anne and Meryl for all their work, chairman, Bob Gage gave a special mention to committee member Kevin Main, and wished him a speedy recovery following his recent operation.
The Best Newcomer Awards 2018 were presented to Nikki Ault who, as many of you know, has a skill for growing super-sized pumpkins, and Carol and Allen Pennels.
This year has been a busy one for the association and we look forward to building closer links with the local community in the coming 12 months to make 2018 an even greater success.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you all, from all at St Julians Allotments!
