Dereham’s local allotment and gardening group has ceased activities in summer2020!

Set up some twenty years ago the Society’s original purpose was to protect the Cemetery Road Allotments in Dereham from development. DDAGS then grew to be a more diverse local society providing events and activities for our members, discount schemes and an annual horticultural show.

With an annual programme of horticultural based events – including garden visits, talks and meetings and a showcase annual event – the Summer Show – the Society had a very active membership of around 100 people.

By early 2020 the Membership had reduced quite significantly and whilst the Summer Show remained a jewel in the crown for the local horticultural calendar, the support for events, talks and other membership services dwindled. The Members decided to close the Society in the Summer of 2020.

However – whilst DDAGS is no longer in existence, the legacy of our website and good relations with Dereham Town Council remain – and if another Horticultural Group gets going in the Dereham area, then they are very welcome to showcase and use this website in the future. There remain two useful contacts below, as well as the gardening tips – which we hope will be of interest.
