Pine Walk Allotments has been in existence a long time - initially on the site of Scotts Park School, moving to its current site once the school was built about 60 years ago.
Pine Walk Allotments is a self managed Allotment Association in the London Borough of Bromley. All allotment management was devolved to local allotments in 1982, so we have been running our association for some time.
We are affiliated to Bromley Allotments and Leisure Gardens Federation (BALGF), which is the recognised representative body with whom discussion and consultation about future policy and implementation of current policy with regard to allotments/leisure gardening in the Borough of Bromley. BALGF actively supports the policy of the L.B.Bromley in promoting and enhancing the use of allotment/leisure gardening facilities throughout the Borough of Bromley.
Pine Walk Allotments Association has a committee with a chairman, secretary and treasurer, as well as a site manager. Other plot holders are invited to assist with the general management as required. Committee members are all volunteers and together with our fellow plot holders we seek to cultivate our plots and help with the maintenance of our communal areas.
We all learn from each other – those with experience pass this on to new tenants. We all want the best for our Association and most importantly we want to have fun working our plots!
Plot holders cultivate fruit , vegetables and flowers - in the past we've had a giant sunflower competition! In addition we have plot holders with chickens, pigeons and a bee keeper. Plot holders maintain the site communal area as well as their own plots, with regular working parties to help clear old overgrown plots and mow shared paths and verges.
