Harrogate and District Allotment Federation holds its annual Allotment Show on August 18.

Produce grown by members will be pride of place at the show.

The Sun Pavilions show will be opened by Mayor of Harrogate Coun Mike Newby at 12pm and will finish at 4pm.

However, outside stalls will open from 11am.

Stalls will sell cakes, honey, jams, preserves and books.

Martin Fish, show director for the North of England Horticultural Society will present prizes at 4pm.

Once the judging is over, allotment holders will auction their produce.

All funds raised at this year’s event will be donated to Harrogate Women’s Refuge for its gardening project.

This is the 53rd year the show has run, having originally been part of the Great Autumn Show.

It is jointly organised with Harrogate council.
