Long Service Recognised
Malcolm Frith has been the chairman of Leeds & District Allotment Gardeners Federation (LDAGF) since 1988. That’s nearly 24 yrs continual voluntary service to the Federation and the allotment movement in Leeds. He has finally stepped down from office due to health and family commitments. His qualities have made him the ideal chairman; he has an authoritative air, is fair, jovial, can see reason and is not frightened of hard work. His past career as a chef in the forces has also been very beneficial to the LDAGF, as he has provided most of the buffets at our annual functions over the years. He will still attend meetingS when possible but will be sadly missed as chairman.
His colleagues put forward a proposal at the Yorkshire Allotment Gardens Federation AGM that he should receive the Yorkshire Cup in recognition of his exceptional service to the allotment movement in Leeds. The presentation of the cup took place at a small informal lunch engagement in Leeds with some of his colleagues. Malcolm was extremely proud to receive the Yorkshire Cup.
