Welcome to the website for the Walton and District Allotment and Garden Society.
The Society is run for the benefit of its members providing expert horticultural
advice together with our own shop supplying all gardening needs. We also organise
the letting of allotments, outings, and an annual show.
This is our Headquarters where we stock an excellent range of composts, fertilisers
and garden sundries. A local nursery grows vegetable plants especially for us to
sell. We are open for members on Thursday from 10.00am until 11.30am and on Saturday
from 9.30am until Noon. See Trading Hut page.
The first three outings for 2017 have now been finalised and booking forms will be
sent to members in our February mail-shot. The first is in May to Myddleton House
Gardens and Capel Manor College. This is followed in June by visits to Houghton Lodge
and Longstock Gardens. Finally in July it will be Sandham Memorial Chapel and Highclere
(Downton Abbey). Full details appear on our Outings page
Annual Show and Events
Our Late Summer Show this year will be held on 12th August in All Saints Catholic
Church Hall in Queens Road Hersham and is open to all comers. In 2015 we introduced
a new annual event “A Taste of Autumn” which will take place on Saturday 7th October
2017 in the Trading Hut.
The Society’s own site, Elm Grove Allotments, is excellently situated in the centre
of Walton. See our Allotments page. The other local sites are Rydens Road, Home
Farm, Burhill and Terrace Road managed by Walton Charity.
We have apiaries on three allotment sites and have Elm Grove and Rydens honey on
sale at the Trading Hut. For more information please visit our Beekeeping page
