Best Allotment Site Winner 2017
BEAS recognised once again
For the second year running, Bournemouth East Allotment Society Ltd (BEAS) has been voted the town's BEST ALLOTMENT SITE.
The society successfully defended the highly sought after accolade that it had won in 2016.
The fantastic achievement was announced and presented on Wednesday 4th October 2017 at a meeting of the Federation of Bournemouth Allotment and Leisure Gardeners.
The prize has delighted the members of BEAS's Committee who were attending the meeting and award ceremony.
2017's Chair of BEAS, Linda Taylor (pictured), gratefully received the trophy and certificate from Ed Alexander, Contract Manager for Bournemouth Parks at Bournemouth Borough Council.
There were also individual awards made as part of the 2017 Allotment Competition.
Blooming Success for BEAS
‘Sunflower Competition 2017’ comes up trumps
We did it! Bournemouth East Allotment Society (BEAS) has scooped 1st Prize in a fantastic competition which was run by the locally based company, Dorset Tea.
Spicers, the makers of Dorset Tea, launched their “Grow The Sunshine” competition back in May 2017.
The company teamed up with Thomson & Morgan seeds, to distribute free packets of sunflower seeds to Societies and Clubs around the county with a simple request that we share pictures of the results on social media, including Twitter and Instagram.
