Walton and District Allotment and Garden Society

Welcome

Welcome to the web site 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 Elm Grove allotments, coach outings, and an annual show.

 

Trading Hut

This is our Headquarters where we  stock an excellent range of composts, fertilisers and garden sundries.

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.

 

Outings

The Society ran three outings in 2019.  The May one was to Scotney Castle and Bateman’s, both National Trust properties. In June the trip was to Audley End, a stunning  house with Victorian gardens.

In July Ascott and Stockwood Discovery Centre were the destinations. Ascott House, a National Trust property administered by the Rothschild family. Stockwood Discovery Centre has extensive gardens and an award-winning display of carriages. See Outings page for 2020 plans

Annual Show and Events

Our Late Summer Show will be held on 17th August 2019 in All Saints Catholic Church Hall in Queens Road Hersham and is open to all comers. During 2019 we are planning to run 3 other events, “A Taste of Spring” and “A Taste of Autumn”, both at the Trading Hut. We wrap up the year in December with an event at Woodlark Nurseries in Hersham to see the magnificent display of Poinsettias grown for Christmas. See our Events page for full details

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, Terrace Road and Burhill managed by Walton Charity.
