Radlett allotments open gates to visitors for Macmillan, Marie Curie Cancer Care and Help the Hospices
Giant pumpkins, a welly throwing contest and prize-winning dahlias attracted crowds to Radlett Allotments at the weekend, raising more than £1,000 for charities as part of the National Garden Scheme (NGS).
The Phillimore Recreation Ground allotments held an Open Day between 12pm and 5.30pm on Sunday to raise money for charities such as Macmillan, Marie Curie Cancer Care and Help the Hospices.
A total of £1,484 was raised through the event, which was organised by the Radlett Horticultural Society and the NGS.
Visitors could wander among the 75 allotments and inspect an array of fruit, vegetables and flowers, including 2lb onions and a giant pumpkin weighing in at over 100lbs.
The welly throwing contest involved pitching the footwear into an empty compost bin to win a coconut.
There was also a variety of produce on sale and refreshments on offer.
