It was great to see so many at our BBQ at the weekend – and especially so many kids. Thanks to Gill for all her hard work organising things and to Michael and Marion for the treasure hunt and Vinny for the trailer tours – always a success!! In fact, thanks to all those who came along and helped make it such a success.

If you missed out this time – here’s a date for your diaries: Our Late Summer BBQ is planned for Sunday 3 September. Why not pop it in your diary now?
Vinny’s Trailer Tours proved as popular as ever at today’s bbq. Brilliant to see so many youngsters on site.
Sunshine and Fun guaranteed from 12.30 onwards! Gill has all the details you need.
There were pollinators a plenty on the plots today: like the rest of us, scudding before the storms threatened for the afternoon perhaps.
Hopefully, they and lots of plotters will be back around on Sunday 11.00 – 12.30 for our Community Sunday Activities – with added coffee and cake for all those with two legs!
Application forms for the 2017 competition are now available and entries have to be returned got to be returned to Aberdeen City Council by 14 July. We have always been big supporters of the City’s, Britain in Bloom efforts and I hope we will see the usual big entry from plotters this year. A good level of entries helps show how keen we plotters are on our allotments and the Council’s work to support green spaces and gardening.
Plotters can pick up an entry from from the Bothy or from Council offices and libraries. Alternatively, you can submit your entry online via the Aberdeen in Bloom Page.
I hope we will see a bumper crop of entries this year!
Our visit to Gardening Scotland gave us all sorts of good ideas for Primary visit activities next year. Lots of imagination and talent on show.
