MCPC Systems became involved at the behest of our founder, Dave Cartner, who very sadly passed away as the first competition got under way in 2015. The family of Dave and staff at MCPC Systems were  honored at the subsequent suggestion, that the shield awarded to the winners would commemorate his name and lifelong passion for Horticulture.

We had a great time visiting last year’s winner Stan Pennington Allotments in St Helens, so it is with much anticipation that we look forward to visiting the winning site later this month.
