Sunday 18th May from 12 – 3pm

What better way to spend a relaxing Sunday than to amble down to one of our local allotments and enjoy food, fun & visual delights!

We are in a lovely season right now, bursts of sunshine aswell as showers of rain, all encouraging vibrant buds to open up and shows us what Mother Nature provides with the tending hands of local residents who work hard on their plots.

There will be various activities on this day including:

Plants for sale




Scarecrow Competition

A really scary scarecrow!

The money raised from this day will go towards the Allotment Society to cover things such as repairing the Trading Shed which at times has been vandalized, building a drainage system to help plot holders accrue a better quality of land that is getting water drenched now trees have been removed that caused overshadow.

Many of the plot holders have a wealth of knowledge, why not pick their brains on gardening tips, let the children see all the different flowers and produce grown to eat whilst enjoying in some Sunday socializing.


Address:  Hertford Avenue Allotments is opposite Richmond Park Academy on Hertford Drive, SW14 8RE
