Late Summer BBQ 2018

Well, the weather may have been a bit Baltic, to begin with, but our BBQ day was still full of fun and friendship.

It was great to see plotters, volunteers, RGU and MacMillan friends there on the day.  Oh, and, by the way, the raffle generated £72 for our GFAA funds. Not bad at all!

Community Sunday August 2018

Thanks to everyone who made it along to help us prepare the site for our IYN Assessment.  It was wonderful to see such a good turnout on what started out as a very unpromising day weather-wise.  A special thanks to Alice (Plot Micro 2c) on her first outing on a Community Sunday and to the magnificent bakers.

What a team!

GFAA Summer Barbecue

12.30 on Sunday 29th July 2018

Plotters and Volunteers, along with families and friends, are cordially invited to our Summer Barbecue at the community orchard area of the Garthdee Field Allotments site.

Please bring your preferred BBQ food and drink, and if possible a salad or sweet to share.

There will be a raffle, with proceeds going to GFAA’s purchase of a new secure waterproof noticeboard.

Donations for the raffle will be gratefully received by Gill Earle (Plot 64), Stuart Oram (Plot 8) or Norman Coutts (Plot 81); or these may be brought on the day of the BBQ.

Please send any queries or offers of help on the day to Gill Earle – g.earl20 at btinternet.com / 07951021319. Offers to loan BBQs, chairs or picnic tables will be especially welcome, and should be advised to Stuart Oram (cstuartoram at yahoo.com / 077866 48223).

Sandy’s Birthday Day Two

It was a matter of have your cake and eat it over at Heather’s Plot today.

No sign of the champagne mind you! We are a very sober lot on Garthdee field apparently.  Mind, you listening to our singing maybe not.

Stonking Community Sunday

Our Community Sundays seem to go from strength to strength. Todays was a proper tonic.  It was great to see so many plotters and volunteers join us.  We had so many willing hands we were able to set up three work squads.  As a result, we managed to fill all of the potholes around the site, complete the planting of the 2000 Spring bulbs the Council gifted us, set about a big tidy up of the wood chip pile and the top carpark and collect all the leaves from along the Western perimeter fence. What a magnificent effort!  Many, many thanks are due to all who found the time to attend.

Thanks too, to all who contributed savouries and cakes for the coffee and cake session.  We had a wonderful spread and time for a right good natter.  It was good to catch up and to see new plotters swapping ideas with old lags – sorry hands – and these exchanges can only help set us up for an even more successful growing season ahead.  As always, this will be the last of our Community Sundays for the year: there will not be a December meet.  Watch out for the first of the new season dates, however, and we will hope to see you there.

Thanks again for all your efforts, Stuart.

Community Sunday – Huge Thanks!

I’d like to thank everyone who turned out to help on yesterday’s Community Sunday, plotters and friends from RGU and MacMillan – indeed even Mr Toad Jnr!  With so many hands available we got through a tonne of tasks and the new style General Meeting generated all sorts of good ideas for funding, better gardening and wider community engagement. It was super to see so many old hands and new faces on the day.  Thanks to all who managed along and for the bakers and makers who produced such a wonderful spread for the coffee and cake session.
