A COUPLE from Rugby have been crowned the West Midlands’ Food Heroes 2012 for their work inspiring others to grow their own food.

John and Sandy Young beat all their competitors nominated from a Lottery-funded initiative called the Master Gardener Programme. The scheme received a £459,709 grant from the Local Food programme in 2009 to create a volunteer support network to help people and communities to grow food.

Kate Newman, Warwickshire volunteer coordinator at the Master Gardener Programme, nominated John and Sandy jointly for an award in the summer.
