ASHGATE ALLOTMENT SOCIETY
"Tucked away on the West side of Chesterfield lies the Ashgate Allotment Society gardens.
We are a little oasis hidden from view and enjoyed throughout the year by our members, their families and our many friends from the animal kingdom. Throughout the year we have many visitors ranging from hedgehogs to foxes and blue tits to badgers all sharing the natural beauty of our gardens.
We have been on this site for over 70 years and have 60 individual plots which all change their appearance throughout the seasons of the year as seeds are sown and crops are grown.
Our vision is very simply for all members to work together for the benefit of the whole Society and the wider community, to treat each other with mutual respect, recognise individual diversity, protect the Society for future generations of allotmenteers and ultimately have fun!"
Coronavirus /Covid -19
The current Covid-19 crisis has highlighted the importance of being extra vigilant when attending the allotment gardens. Specifically, it is essential that we maintain appropriate social distancing and practise effective hand protection and hand washing to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.
Please read the current newsletter for our latest advice to protect not only yourself, but everyone else in the Society.
