Eyes in our Skies

You know the old adage that if you want something done with technology – find a five-year-old?  Well, it turns out that an eleven-year-old and her team can do even better.

Charlotte, Lewis and Amelia (Pilot)

For months now, we have wanted some aerial footage of our site.  Finally, last weekend, Phil on Plot 35 came to our aid, offering the services of his crack drone team.

So, for the first time, sit back, relax and enjoy these eyes in the skies over Garthdee Allotments.  Can you spot your own plot?

Formula 1 Skills

We had the pleasure of hosting Mrs Maclean’s Primary 3 today.

This is a bit trickier than it looked.

 

Getting my racing lines right now.

 

Cracked it!

 

Tree Planting Opportunity by River Dee

Calum Hislop has been in touch about a tree planting event at Garthdee on the 27/4/18. Calum would be delighted to hear from any plotters who might be interested in helping out with some planting.

Please let Calum know if you might be attending, to help with the organising of drinks and snacks for the number of likely attendees.

Fit a bonnie bonfire!

Once Stuart got the idea that triangles need three legs, today’s bonfire got off to a blazing start.

After that, we got on like a house on fire.

Apologies are due to all of those who came to help, but were not captured on film.  Let’s just say the photographer got caught up in the heat of the moment.

We did manage to catch sight of Gordon, our volunteer who came along to help, making this four days this week he has been helping out. Ashley gets the ‘Best Boots of the Day’ award.

So, with so many hands to help we shifted the entire collection of stuff and finished with a cup of well-earned coffee just after twelve noon.  The Committee send their sincere thanks to everyone who helped.

The best news of all is that we get to do it all again tomorrow for Community Sunday and the weather is set fair again.  This is more like it!

 

South Bank in Spring

Our South Bank matures with each passing season and is beginning to look just great this Spring.

 

Thanks go to Michael on Plot 88, our plotters and volunteers for all their efforts and to Aberdeen City Council for their kind donation of spring bulbs over several years.
