For over 100 years Newton-le-Willows Gardeners' Association has been working for the benefits of local gardeners with a membership of about 650 in and around Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside, in the United Kingdom.
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.
We hold a Flower & Vegetable Show in September each year and there are regular lectures or demonstrations on a variety of horticultural topics. 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
Our origins are uncertain, but the general belief is that it probably all started with the formation of an Allotments Association during the First World War. More information about the early days and pictures on our "History" page.
