BBQ July 2018

EVENT POSTPONED!!!!! 

 

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).

Shed Break-ins

Last night there has been a series of break-ins at GFAA sheds, and a large number have had padlocks sheared with bolt cutters.

Could you please:

1 check the security of your shed as soon as practicable, and where this has been compromised, reinstate security promptly

2 where things have been stolen, itemise these and inform the police yourself. This is the most effective way in which we can benefit from increased patrols near the site.

Thanks and Best Regards

It’s Community Sunday this weekend

Dear plotters, volunteers and friends,

You are cordially invited to this month’s Community Sunday, from 11.00 (coffee and cakes from 12.30).
The wet and cool start to the year leaves plenty of opportunities to contribute to site maintenance, as we start the run-in to Its Your Neighbourhood 2018:
– weeding the wildflower meadow / re-seeding (as appropriate)
– dead heading daffodils
– re-vitalising the raised beds
– pothole filling
– filling ruts by the South Car Park bins with surplus soil at the South Bank
– tidying the North Bank.
Looking forward to seeing all who can make the session (and hoping for more dry weather at least on midday Sunday),
Best Regards
Michael Hart
Secretary – GFAA

One Seed Forward

The splendid, One Seed Forward Project is getting ready for another bumper year.

Plotters wanting to know more or take part can check out the details on their website.

Manure Deliveries

Happy New Year Plotters,

If you have been to the site recently, you will have noticed that a full 10 Tonne load of cow dung has been delivered to the Primary School Plot.  This is for use in the Community Garden.  Please do not use it for other purposes. However, another full load for use by plotters has been ordered and we expect delivery to the top of the site in the course of this month (January).

This second 10 Tonne load will be for the use of all GFAA plotters.  In the first instance, please take only a barrow load or two for use on your plot.  This is to make sure that everyone gets a fair allocation for a start. More may be available later in the year.

Calling All Plotters: Community Sunday

 

Dear Plotters,

This is a call for this month’s Community Sunday, this Sunday at 11.00 (weather permitting), with coffee/tea and cakes from 12.30 at the Octagon.
There’s plenty to do on site:
– fill potholes
– complete bulb planting at Octagon (partially completed by Volunteers)
– general site tidy
– work to limit puddle collection near bottom bins
– tree trimming, top car park
– etc.
Looking forward to seeing all who can make it for some light work (and the coffee/tea and cakes too),
Best Regards
Michael Hart
