The Hut @ Rob Lane Allotments.
The main attraction for members is our shop on the Rob Lane Allotments site in Newton (generally known as the “Sales Hut”) where composts, fertilizers, and many other gardening requisites can be purchased at very competitive prices. Since January 2022 we have been able to accept debit and credit card payments for amounts over £10.00.
The latest pricelist is below and can be downloaded. (Please note these do change and you should check for updates when you visit The Hut)
We hold a Flower & Vegetable Show in September each year and coach trips are arranged to major flower shows, stately homes, famous gardens, or other places of interest.
Members receive two newsletters each year and the annual membership fee is £5.00
