Our new It’s Your Neighbourhood (IYN) Assessors, Ian and Sandra visited this week. It was a pleasure to meet them and to show them around our site.
I’ve got to say Garthdee Field was looking wonderful for the visit. Thanks go to all who contributed to getting the site into the best possible shape for the visit. It will be a week or more before we get feedback on the assessment, but whatever the outcome, I am sure everyone did their very best to present our site at its best.
We don’t often link to other people’s sites around here, but this item on plotters from the Guardian is well worth a look and great fun to boot. Looks like these plotters would fit right in around here!
it was great fun today joining the Macmillan team as they started work fencing off their plot and super to see the progress they have made this year.
We have our It’s Your Neighbourhood Competition assessment visit on August 18. All GFAA members are invited along on the day to meet with our assessors. We are hoping for a record turnout of plotters. Please come along if you can manage.
We have a power of work to do to have the site ship-shape for the visit and so we plan to have an extra Community Sunday session this coming Sunday – August 14 at 11.00 – 12.30. As usual it will be all hands to the wheel with good company to get things done and then a coffee and cake session at the Bothy to celebrate a job well done.
Please come along and help if you can spare the time.
I came across Sandy about to head home with this splendid cauliflower.
As I said to him, he is going to need a lot more cheese to go with this one!
