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 66 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 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.


If you would like to know more about us, or would like to join please get in touch using the contact form or call in to the shop one Sunday morning.


We look forward to meeting you soon.


The website is under continual development so if you have any ideas or would like to contribute please get in touch using the contact form or e-mail graham@eahgs.org.uk Thank you.

Allotment Shop News- Pre ordered seed potatoes


The allotment shop  is open for the 2020 growing season every Sunday morning from 10am to midday until further notice.

Pre-ordered seed potatoes are now available for collection on Sunday mornings during shop opening hours. Please collect your orders as soon as possible as we have limited storage space. Thank you.

Car use at Pippenhall during the winter

I have had reports from several plot holders regarding cars driving down to the bottom of the site, presumably some to their plots, and turning their cars round in what is very wet and muddy ground. This is causing problems at the bottom of the site for plot holders and making the ground very slippery and dangerous under foot.
As advised when being shown round as a potential plot holder, driving down to the bottom of the site isn't advised or expected during the winter months or any time of the year if we have experienced heavy rain. Also if your car does become stuck it is your responsibility alone to have it removed.
I have discussed this with the Council and they are looking into taking measures to stop all cars driving down the site during the winter months.

Car parking should only be at the top of the site adjacent to the building. Please do not drive down the track until further notice due to the wet and muddy conditions.

Mains water turned off for Winter

Please note that the mains water supply at Pippenhall has now been turned off for the winter to avoid the risk of burst pipes.

This means that the toilets are now unavailable until the supply is turned back on again.
