In normal times the Banksian medal is awarded to the member with the most points in RGS shows. This year the committee voted to award the medal to our chair, in recognition of her hard work and achievement in keeping the allotments open safely for us all. After the distanced presentation Helen said:
” I was very surprised and delighted to receive this award. I had no idea that I was going to a presentation today! Thank you for thinking to give me the Banksian Medal and for your kind words all done in such a wonderfully conspiratorial way. However, I must stress that nothing would have been possible without our fantastically resourceful and positive committee so many many thanks should go to them too”.
