Welcome to the Chippenham Garden & Allotment Society!
The Society manages Chippenhams six allotment sites situated
in several areas around the town. The allotments are worked by an
enthusiastic selection of gardeners with flourishing and productive
plots. The Society also run a programme of monthly talks,
trips to gardens and shows and organizes the Annual Show.
Our next social evening is at 7.30pm on Tuesday 9th April
when Fiona Turnbull will talk about "Taking better photographs".
Why not come along to find out more about some of the basics, such as depth of field and focusing, as well as how to be creative through compostion and colour? As usual everyone is welcome!
The 2012 Annual Show was held on Saturday 1st September
in The Neeld Hall. As usual there was a wide variety of different
categories, from the "Master Gardener" to floral art. We have now
started planning for next years' show so please get
in touch if you have any ideas or would like to get involved!
Help wanted! The Society is run by its members for its members.
We are looking for helpers in a number of different areas, from
helping on the committee or with organising the annual show to distributing
mailings and contributing to the website. Why not get
in touch if you have some spare time?
Do you know about the history of the allotments in Chippenham? Perhaps your father or grandfather had a plot? If so we would like to hear from you!
