Eltham and Avery Hill Gardens Society
Eltham and Avery Hill Gardens Society

Welcome to the Eltham and Avery Hill Gardens Society website

 

We were founded 72 years ago by local residents, including our late Chairman and President, Charles Strangwige, to promote gardening and allotment activity in the Avery Hill and Eltham Park areas and we are still going strong today. Many of our members are tenants at Pippenhall allotments on the Bexley Road and other local allotment sites.

 

We organise various events throughout the year and run a shop at Pippenhall allotments selling a range of popular garden products. The shop is open every Sunday morning from February until the end of November between 10am and midday- see the shop section for more details or better still come along on a Sunday morning to see for yourself. 

 

If you would like to know more about us, or would like to join please get in touch using the contact form 

 

We look forward to meeting you soon.

We are well stocked again for the growing season including reduced peat and Sylvagrow peat free composts, soil improvers and sterilized farmyard/horse manure. Grow bags are now peat free and larger in size.

 

Water Supply at Pippenhall Allotments turned on for the growing season

THE WATER AT PIPPENHALL ALLOTMENTS HAS NOW BEEN TURNED BACK ON FOR THE 

 

2024 GROWING SEASON.

 

THE TOILETS ARE NOW BACK IN USE.

 

Please can tenants return the key for the Ladies toilet door to the board in the tool store after use promptly.

 

The new door on the Gents toilet no longer needs a key as it has an internally operated lock.

 

Thank you.

Pippenhall Allotment Notice

 

I HAVE BEEN INFORMED BY A PLOT HOLDER THAT GREEN WASTE ETC FROM ANOTHER PLOT IS BEING DUMPED ON THEIR PLOT. THIS HAS BEEN REPORTED TO THE COUNCIL. I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND ALL PLOT HOLDERS THAT THIS IS NOT PERMITTED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. ANY PLOT HOLDER THAT IS SEEN/CAUGHT/REPORTED DUMPING ANY FORM OF RUBBISH/GREEN WASTE ON ANOTHER PLOT OR ANYWHERE ON THE SITE INCLUDING THE PATHS WILL HAVE THEIR TENANCY TERMINATED. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO REMOVE ALL UNWANTED ITEMS AND WASTE FROM THE SITE. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF OTHER PLOT HOLDERS!

 

Pat Middleton Site Representative- December 31st 2021

Reminder about car use on site at Pippenhall

Please do NOT drive down the centre path at Pippenhall if it’s raining or there has been heavy rain, or use the bottom of the site to turn your car around. The path and the ground at the bottom of the site gets extremely wet and often floods as the water does not drain away quickly.

 

 

WHEELBARROWS
Just a reminder that the wheelbarrows are NOT to be taken and used off site. They are for use ON SITE ONLY by those plot holders that have purchased a key to the locker storage shed, please do not keep them on your plot overnight and always return them to the storage room after use.

Pippenhall Allotments availability- 

There are no vacant plots as of April 2024 and with more than 50 people on the waiting list the council have closed the list for new applicants for the time being. The council will contact those at the top of the waiting list directly about a vacant plot when one becomes available. This is most likely to happen in  April or May each year after the new rental year starts and tenants decide to give up their plot.

 

Please note that all enquiries about allotment availability or joining the waiting list for an allotment should be made with the Royal Borough of Greenwich via their website. We are unable to help with enquiries about allotment availability. Please see the allotments webpage for more information.
