GFAA Summer Barbecue

12.30 on Sunday 29th July 2018

Plotters and Volunteers, along with families and friends, are cordially invited to our Summer Barbecue at the community orchard area of the Garthdee Field Allotments site.

Please bring your preferred BBQ food and drink, and if possible a salad or sweet to share.

There will be a raffle, with proceeds going to GFAA’s purchase of a new secure waterproof noticeboard.

Donations for the raffle will be gratefully received by Gill Earle (Plot 64), Stuart Oram (Plot 8) or Norman Coutts (Plot 81); or these may be brought on the day of the BBQ.

Please send any queries or offers of help on the day to Gill Earle – g.earl20 at btinternet.com / 07951021319. Offers to loan BBQs, chairs or picnic tables will be especially welcome, and should be advised to Stuart Oram (cstuartoram at yahoo.com / 077866 48223).

Community Sunday July 2018

Many thanks to all who helped out yesterday at our Community Sunday. Some really hard work was done with the Primary School plot completely weeded as well as all the raised beds – all in an hour and a half. Special mention for Ava from plot 38 who gathered up stones unearthed during earlier weeding- and she’s only 8 but she did a great job.

Green-fingered Plotters

Pollinator Monitoring Scheme (UK)

Thanks go to Sonya )Plot 97B) for suggesting this post.

This citizen science research project gives details of 14 pollinator-friendly flowers and invites participants to monitor plants and visitors in a set square of their plot.

Break-ins and the Police

The Police visited the site today and spoke with a number of plotters who suffered break-ins to their sheds.

They request that all plotters affected phone in a notification of the event including any damage or losses via the 101 non-emergency number and cite Incident Number CF 0167170718.  This will allow the Police to take a coordinated approach in their response.

 

Bees’ needs abound

Am I right in thinking there have been more bees around this year?  I guess the weather has been to their liking.  However, it’s clear they need all the help we can offer them.  This is Bees’ Needs Week.  Check out these ideas for helping them out.
