The, It’s your Neighbourhood programme, had trees, bees and butterflies as a special focus this year and this prompted us to take a look at the trees and bees found on site. We decided to conduct a little informal research and thanks goes to all who contributed ideas and information.
Our first report of interim findings is attached via the link below. All comments, additions or corrections will be gratefully received.
GFAA Outdoor Classroom/Wheelchair-Accessible Toilet Opening and Late Summer Barbecue
Saturday 9th September 2016

Plotters and our volunteers, along with their families and friends, are invited to our Opening Event and Late Summer Barbecue at the community orchard area of the Garthdee Field Allotments Site.
The opening ceremony with drinks will take place from 12.00-12.30 with the BBQ to follow immediately.
Please bring your preferred BBQ food and drink.
Entertainment will include a French Boules Competition, a Children’s Treasure Hunt, Live Music and (back by popular demand) Vinnie’s Trailer Tours.
There will be a Raffle with proceeds going to GFAA and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Donations for the raffle will be gratefully received by
Gill Earle (Plot 64), Stuart Oram (Plot 8) or Norman Coutts (Plot 81)
Please send any queries or offers of help on the day to Gill Earle – firstname.lastname@example.org / 07951021319. Offers to loan BBQs, gazebos, chairs or picnic tables would be especially helpful.
In support of the It’s Your Neighbourhood 2017 theme – Birds, Bees and Trees – we have begun to survey and identify the trees around our site.
Marion (Plot 88) has created a prototype of a label we could use to identify each tree for interested plotters and visitors.
However, we need your help. Can we have suggestions please as to materials and finishes that might be used to weather-proof the labels?
