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.
The allotment shop is now open every Sunday morning from 10am until midday until further notice.
Please note that pre-ordered seed potatoes are now available for collection and there are limited quantaties available for purchase on a first come first serve basis. See the shop page for more detail.
Water Supply turned on for the growing season
The mains water supply at Pippenhall has now been turned on as there should be little risk of frozen and burst pipes. This also means the toilets are now available for use. Please use water sensibly on your plots as the supply is metered and excess charges could affect future allotment rent increases.
Please see the allotments webpage for more information.
Site last updated on March 18th 2019 with latest growing advice and details on water supply at Pippenhall being turned back on.
