A Cleaner, Greener Scotland?

Lorna Graham from Aberdeen city Council has just passed on the latest edition of the Clean Up Scotland – see the link below.

This item caught my eye:


During the months of April and May, we are encouraging people to register a Spring Clean Up, enabling everyone to unite together in a common cause to keep their part of Scotland beautiful. A total of £10 billion a year is spent picking up litter across Europe, with the bill in Scotland amounting to more than a million a week.

Register a Clean Up of your local area with friends and family, work colleagues or your community group at

If you would like further information about our Clean Up Scotland campaign email or call 01786 471333

I wondered if any plotters would like to join a group to tidy our site and its boundaries as a welcome to Spring?  Get in touch is you fancy it.


Time to get buzzing!

Farewell Mhairi

MhairiWe learned this week that Mhairi from the RGU Student Plot and Community Garden Project will be leaving soon to take up a new post. While we are delighted Mhairi is moving on in her career, we will all be very sorry to see her go. The energy she brought to the plot and project was exceptional and her contributions to our general meetings were always well-considered and helpful. We will miss her enthusiasm, bright ideas and wide knowledge of community involvement and funding opportunities.I am sure we will all want to wish her happy landings in her new post and every success in her new roles and responsibilities. Hopefully she will manage to pop back from time to time to see how the RGU projects are getting on.
