Benhill-Crescent Horticultural Society is an active not-for-profit society for allotment holders and gardeners, based at the Benhill Allotment site in Benhill Road, Sutton.
With origins going back to 1957, the society currently has approximately 250 members from around the borough and beyond.
Even if you’re not an allotment holder, you can become a member and take advantage of the great prices at the Trading Hut.
You can also be part of the many social events throughout the year, sharing expertise, time and fun with like-minded people. Most events are free and all members are welcome to attend.
Call in to the Trading Hut at Benhill Road on any Sunday morning to join.

Every year we select a charity to support.
Please note: that as our Shows and Social events were postponed in 2020 we have carried over fund raising for The Diamond Centre into 2021.
The Diamond Centre for Disabled Riders provides therapeutic riding and carriage driving for children and adults with disabilities.
As part of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA), The Diamond Centre exists to provide disabled people with the opportunity to ride, carriage drive or vault at the level of their ability to benefit their health and well being.
