By Press Release Feb 12, 2024

The 2024 Hedgelaying Competition, due to take place on February 24, has been postponed until next year.

Co-organiser, Matthew Chatfield, of the IW Hedgerow Group said: “I appreciate this will be a disappointment to many, and we would like to thank all the competitors and others for their patience this year.

“The good news is that we have secured a site for 2025 already, so I can confirm the 2025 competition will be held on February 22, 2025, at Parkdown Barns, Calbourne Road, Newport by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Mike Morris.

“This site proved popular in 2015 and 2016 with well-attended events. We look forward to welcoming you to the competition next year.”
