Location: Shacklegate Lane Allotments, Teddington

Session: Mondays 10-12

We are really pleased to announce our latest project, our Age UK Richmond Community Allotment.  We have two neighbouring allotments at the Shacklegate Lane site, next to Teddington Cemetery.

Since we took it on in the autumn, we have spent many hours clearing it -we’ve had lots of help from our friends/partners at Santander and Paypal, alongside our pioneering group of clients.

Come along and join us as we develop our allotment into a lovely place to get some fresh air, light exercise and friendly chat at our regular sessions. All levels of gardening expertise welcome and everyone can do as much or as little as they like!

The way it works

  • A one-off £15 annual fee to become a member of our allotment group (first session no charge).
  • We will be open every Monday from 10-12 during the winter. We may add another session after Easter if we need it.
  • Come along in your comfy clothes (that you don’t mind getting a bit muddy) and join in with the fun!

Contact Sue Hollins on 020 8744 1965 if you would like to join, or for more information.

We look forward to meeting you!

Follow our progress so far...when we took our allotment on it looked like this!

With help from Santander and Paypal the plot is now looking much more like an allotment, soon ready for spring planting.
