Club 10 come calling

It was great to welcome members of Club 10 on their return to harvest from their raised bed. Didn’t they do well!

Planks, planks, planks

The volunteer Squad were on maneuvers today on a mission to source us some more scaffold planks.

Ron, Mike and Gordon working as hard as ever

I am pleased to report it was mission completed by the end of the day. If you are interested in topping up your stock, please contact Ron (Plot 65A) or on 07818413999  to arrange delivery.

Plot Mates

Paul (Plot 67) and Stuart (Plot 8) were kind enough to send these photos. They are a reminder of some of the wildlife with which we share our site.

If plotters have any other photos of wildlife on their plots it would be great to have them to share here. :-)

August Efforts

Forgive the pun. Well, today’s Community Sunday gathering just went to show – when the going gets tough, the tough get going!

Anyone for a little light weeding?
Witness the benefits of Community Payback schemes
They also serve, who sit and stare
Just call me the Chain_Gang Boss: it’s dirty work, but somebody’s got to do it.
Coffee and Cake: for what we are about to receive, may we be spared food poisoning.
It’s time to go for Ron’s Rock Cakes again while nobody’s watching.

Apologies to all who were not photographed today and to all whom the captions offend. We had approaching 20 participants and got a fantastic amount of work done. Huge thanks to all who managed along – but next month we can squeeze in a few more for sure. We look forward to seeing you then.

Gwen’s Garden Request

Benji from Gwen’s Garden have asked for our help.

“Can I ask for help with the project we have in the field next to you called Gwen’s Garden. We’re a small grassroots group helping promote bio diversity in the area. And are asking for some help with donations of any spare flowers or plants preferably perennials but all is welcome.”

We’d like to work in partnership with the allotments to really promote diversity back into the area. I’ve attached are tree planting plan for winter 2020, and a link to our Facebook page and our page on its your neighbourhood site. If you can spread the word around the allotments it would be truly appreciated.

This is an excellent project and I am sure many plotters will want to help. You can reach Benji by email at: benespindola@googlemail.com.

Fruity Research Opportunity

Dr Nigel Hoggard from the University of Aberdeen has been in touch asking if we could help him recruit volunteers to take part in his Fruit Bar Study. This research project investigates the effect of fruit bars on sugar levels in blood. Further details are available on the study’s website.
