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.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
The lock has been inspected by an independent locksmith and unfortunately it cannot be repaired. As a result it will be necessary to replace the lock and issue new keys to all tenants in the near future.
Every tenant at Pippenhall will receive a letter from the Royal Borough of Greenwich regarding this matter and the arrangements for the issue of new keys. Please make sure you read this letter.
It is with great sadness that we have to report that one of the societies founder members, and for many years Chairman and President, Charles Strangwige recently passed away after a long illness. The Society send their condolences to his family at this difficult time.
The allotment shop is now open every Sunday morning from 9.30am until midday until further notice.
Please see the allotments webpage for more information.
