2017 AGM

2017 AGM

The Royal Paddocks Allotments’ 2017 AGM will be held on Thursday 9th November at the Hampton Wick Royal Cricket Club, Bushy Park.

The doors (and the cricket club’s excellent bar) will open at 7.30 pm for an 8 pm start.

We hope that as many of you as possible can make it (we need at least 40 to be quorate). If you have any items for the agenda, please post a note in the letterbox in the shed by the gate or e-mail by 22nd October 2017 to

Proposals for Plotholder Committee members, to be elected at the AGM, should be submitted by 22nd October 2017. Anyone who wishes to put themselves forward must be proposed and seconded by two plotholders (forms are in the café and the shed by the pedestrian gate). Please return forms by posting in the shed letterbox (or give to the committee member on Sunday office duty).

Plotholders Committee

What a perfect day!

BBQ Team

What a perfect day!

What a perfect day of sunshine for an Autumn Social! Produce Show tents full of entries, judges having a hard time deliberating over veg, flowers, jams and chutneys. A monster spider loomed over the Scarecrow competition flanked by two elegant toffs and Cllr Jerry Elloy presented winning rosettes!

"Give us a lift!"

They certainly do! Nothing lifts a website like good photos. Portraits of fellow plotholders proudly displaying their horticultural successes. Inspirational images of nature’s bounty. Or candid shots of the less savoury aspects of allotment life.

Our photo galleries feature all these – and more.
