TWO tractor loads of organic compost were delivered to allotment holders in Whitchurch.

Jody Scheckter, owner of Laverstoke Park Farm near Overton, offered the compost as a gift to the town after judging an allotment competition earlier in the year.

Whitchurch Town Council-lor Mike Kean said: “It’s a good gesture from him. When he came to present the awards, I think he was quite impressed with the site and the soil.”

The allotment sites are in Bloswood Lane and Winchester Road.
