The shop will be open for purchases by members upon presentation of a valid current membership card, from 10am-12 noon every Friday & Saturday over the coming months. We hope to continue to open at these times every Friday and Saturday through to October, subject to availability of volunteers to help run it.
Please note that we are currently experiencing considerable difficulties in sourcing stock. Whilst at end of May we have a reasonable amount of horse manure compost, we have very few bags of other composts at present. Christine Bentley, our volunteer shop manager, is working hard to replenish stocks as quickly as possible; we will update you as soon as the situation improves.
The members’ shop is on the Pickards Field allotment site, Pinehurst Road, Swindon SN2 1QE. The site entrance is at the North end of the houses on the West side of Pinehurst Road, adjacent to No 51 Pinehurst Road; it’s on the left if you’re travelling North from Great Western Way (roundabout)/Ferndale Road (traffic lights), and on the right if you’re coming South from The (Pinehurst) Circle – see map.

The shop offers a range of composts, fertilisers, canes, netting etc for purchase by SALGA members. Payment may be made by cash or cheque; currently we do not accept card payment as we lack the required internet connection at Pickards Field. 2020 prices for some of the more popular stock items are given in the file below (click on “download”). NB shop prices are currently being updated, and a revised, 2021, list will be published soon. Meanwhile, the 2020 price list given here should be regarded as indicative only.
