Best Kept Allotment

Environment Hailsham is always on the lookout for the town’s most attractive allotment. Judging for the Best Kept Allotment competition takes place in June of each year and all Hailsham Town Council allotment holders are automatically entered. Individual plots are judged.

Allotments will be assessed on the following criteria:

  • Variety and quality of the crop(s)
  • Control of weeds and litter
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Use of grey water and mulch (and other water conservation activities)
  • Effective use of compost
