New Mills Allotment & Gardening Society
New Mills Allotment & Gardening Society manages two allotment sites in New Mills in the High Peak, Derbyshire – one at ollersett Avenue and one at Hague Bar.
Our site off Ollersett Avenue was set up in 2005 with 31 plots. The Hague Bar site has 23 plots. Due to the popularity of allotmenteering we have a waiting list for both sites so please contact the secretary if you wish to add your name. Plots will be allocated fairly when they become available.
Membership of our society is open to any local resident who loves gardening and we are interested in hearing from any inexperienced gardeners who wish to develop their skills and grow their own vegetables. Vacant plots will only be available to residents of New Mills (within the New Mills Town Council parish boundary).
The society also participates in the National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners’ seed scheme to enable members to buy seeds more cheaply than from a garden centre or seed supplier.
Benefits of membership include the opportunity:
• To network with other gardeners
• To participate in the seed purchasing scheme
• To promote gardening as a healthy living activity
• To rent an allotment on the sites
For a membership form or more information please contact the secretary:
The society acknowledges funding support from North Derbyshire Voluntary Action, Derbyshire Community Foundation, the Healthy Living Network, New Mills Town Council and Derbyshire County Council for development work on the Ollersett allotment site.
