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!
CFINE urgently need long lasting foods- as per the attached poster. Our friends at Inchgarth Community Centre have asked us to help with this appeal.
We have some new additions to our stock of tools which can be borrowed by any plotter.
These were very kindly donated by Anne, an Aberdeen resident who is soon to move into a new home where she will no longer need them. Anne contacted us via the website.
The tools are now available in the GFAA tool store by the micro plots. Ask any plotter if you need to know access details. The pots and trays have been left by the bothy for uplift by anyone who can use them.
My thanks to Stephanie Morrison from RGU for alerting me to this very interesting article on possible funding sources, but just how much work is needed to secure them.
Our Community Sunday activities got off to a rather chaotic start today , with the usual suspects in very frisky and somewhat indisciplined form. Peter for one seemed to be re-living a past experience of some peasant revolt or other.
Luckily, once he was done resting his fork, Phil stepped in, quickly establishing his front-line HQ and demonstrating strong and stable leadership (where have I heard this phrase before?) he started issuing orders to the troops from his mobile management communications device.
He soon had the team whipped into shape. As you can see this made a world of difference.
The phrase, Dads’ Army meets the Women’s Land Army somehow springs to mind. However, great progress was made on the Wild Flower Area Mark II and it was a great pleasure to welcome Priscilla and her family on site.
All in all it was another great Community Sunday. Thanks to all who pitched up and apologies to those (many) others who yet again missed out on getting their photos taken.
The weather seems to be set fair, so we are hoping for a bumper turnout for this week’s Community Sunday – 21 May.
Coming along is a great way to meet other plotters and get up to date with what’s going on around our site. We have a lot happening right now and many helping hands make for light work.
I hope we will see the regulars and some new faces on the day. As always, there will be coffee and cake (about 12.30) in the sunshine and plenty opportunities for a natter during and after the activities.
