1912 - 2017

West Wickham Allotments Association (WWAA) is at Hawes Lane (Opposite Glebe School) in West Wickham and is a reasonably large site of 7.9 acres in total, comprising 204 plots. Most plots are approximately 125 sq. metres (30' x 45' for those, like many of us who cannot cope with metric!) although a few are slightly larger (175 sq. metres). A few plots are sub-divided and Let as half plots to members who do not feel able to manage a full sized plot.

The Hawes Lane site came into being in 1912, and is now leased to the Association by Bromley Council. It is managed by the Management Committee consisting of members elected at the November Annual General Meeting. The Association operates a Trading Shed, open 10.30am to 12.30pm on Sundays, where plot holders can purchase seeds, fertilisers, gardening equipment and sundries at competitive prices.

The Association is a friendly organisation and welcomes new members; all new plot holders are automatically entered into the Ted Goodall Cup for the best newcomer’s plot and this is presented at the Members' Xmas Drinks in December. Being a plot holder offers the chance to meet and make new friends, exchange ideas, enjoy the fresh air as well as enjoying the (literal!) fruits of your labours.

In July we hold a Barbeque where all plot holders are invited and our Open Day follows in August where all plot holders are invited to help! Funds raised from such events are donated to our chosen charity, St Christopher’s Hospice. The Members' Xmas Drinks is held shortly before Christmas – a cosy affair in the Trading Shed with drinks and nibbles keeping off the cold.
