We were founded 66 years ago by local residents, including our recently retired 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 popular shop selling a wide range of garden products at discounted prices, most of which are substantially cheaper than DIY stores or local garden centres. The shop is open every Sunday morning at Pippenhall Allotments- see the shop section for more details or better still pop along on a Sunday morning to see for yourself.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
Winter closure of the shop
The shop closes for its winter break at midday on Sunday 25th November and will re-open at 10am on Sunday February 3rd 2019.
Water Supply turned off for winter
The mains water supply at Pippenhall has now been turned off for the winter to avoid the risk of frozen and burst pipes. As soon as it is turned back on in the early spring we will update this notice.
Please see the allotments webpage for more information.
Site last updated on November 26th 2018 with an update from the allotments on opening times and the water supply being turned off for winter.
