Trading Hut Times

The Trading Hut at Cheyne Walk Allotments is now officially closed until 9th February although weather permitting it will be open from time to time at weekends.

When the Hut reopens, there will be four varieties of seed potatoes and two varieties of onion sets on sale, as well as all the usual items. The Society endeavours to maintain low prices for all the products  and keep well stocked to meet member’s requirements.

Annual Show Report 2019

The 78th Annual Show

Another very successful Annual Show with 34 entrants exhibiting over 280 entries.

The new categories for Butternut Squash and Vegetable Cake were well received and will be included again in 2020.

Despite erratic weather conditions and the Show taking place a week later, our members were able to produce a wonderful selection of vegetables, fruits and flowers and a vast array of preserves and baking. The Mayor of Enfield, Cllr Kate Anolue gave an inspiring and encouraging speech.


Woodcroft Wildspace Visit

24 members enjoyed a very informative guided walk through Woodcroft Wildspace on 3rd July.

Starting at the new entrance walk, and on to Contemplation Corner and continuing through woodland to see the eco-gym and through to the orchard where there are over 80 apple trees including heritage varieties.

The workings of the water storage and watering system were explained and there was a break at the three ponds before going into the Sensory Garden. A relaxing  finish with tea and scones followed.
