Update November 2020 :- As you are aware it is with much regret the decision to cancel  the 2020 Annual Allotment Show at the MAC, due to the uncertainties caused by the coronavirus situation and financial penalties that we would occur by late cancellation.

Because of the continuing uncertainties over the length of time it will take to get the vaccine rolled out and how long the coronavirus restrictions will be in place for 2021 The decision has been made to postpone the 2021 show until August 2022.

It it is the intention to hold a smaller informal events one for Vegetables and a second for Flowers these will be held before the end of the 2021 growing season, I will keep you informed when anything is proposed.
