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 70 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 selling a range of popular garden products. The shop is open every Sunday morning at Pippenhall Allotments 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.

Update on allotment bonfires as of June 24th 2022

 

 

 

Bonfires on site are still not permitted until further notice

The following is from the lead environmental health officer, Royal Borough of Greenwich:

We have implemented the no bonfire policy throughout the pandemic period so residents can have fresh air in their homes.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich comes under the Air Quality Management Area and therefore, have insisted that residents should compost garden related rubbish rather than burning, hence we do not encourage bonfires at allotments.

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.
