The Isle of Wight Hedgerow Group has announced that the 2019 competition will not go ahead this year.
Despite their best efforts, the group have been unable to secure a site with both a good hedge and safe access. As a result, the decision has been made not to proceed with an event in 2019.
A spokesperson for the group has said:
“We shall be back in future years. Many thanks to the sponsors, supporters and competitors who have been involved so far, and apologies for the break.
“In the meantime, if you know a landowner with a tall, even hawthorn hedge of 200m or longer that is not on a roadside, with a dry field for parking next to it, get in touch for 2020”.
