Many thanks to all who helped out yesterday at our Community Sunday. Some really hard work was done with the Primary School plot completely weeded as well as all the raised beds – all in an hour and a half. Special mention for Ava from plot 38 who gathered up stones unearthed during earlier weeding- and she’s only 8 but she did a great job.

We could not have hoped for a better day to work on the new raised bed we have built for Orchard Brae School’s Nursery.
Don’t worry, we did finally sort out our alternating layers and corners and got them into the right order! The bed is three meters long by one meter wide and almost half a meter high and build with timbers kindly donated by Robertson Construction.
Our thanks go to Roddy Mckinnon for all his help and organisation on the day.
Orchard Brae is a new school and nursery in Aberdeen, designed especially for pupils with additional support needs.
Today we got a squad in place to make a start. The re-seeding of the grassy areas in the playground was identified as a priority.
We had a good day, in great company, but in the heat, it was pretty hard going. We are going to have to make at least one return visit. If you could spare a couple of hours to help out over the next few weeks, please see Stuart or me.
Thanks to Mike and Gordon, and especially Ron, who came along at short notice to lend a hand.
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!
