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.

All aboard please!

Vinny’s Trailer Tours proved as popular as ever at today’s bbq.  Brilliant to see so many youngsters on site.

Pollinators on Parade

There were pollinators a plenty on the plots today: like the rest of us, scudding before the storms threatened for the afternoon perhaps.

Hopefully, they and lots of plotters will be back around on Sunday 11.00 – 12.30 for our Community Sunday Activities – with added coffee and cake for all those with two legs!

Sunday 25 June BBQ Day!

Don’t miss out – put the GFAA Early Summer BBQ date in your diary now!

New site feature – Photo Galleries

Our site has a new photo showing feature.  From now on photo collections will appear via the Galleries link above.  Photos should look better and load faster.  Please let me know how you get on using it.

The first set has some nice photos from our recent Community Sunday – as you see, great fun was had by all and with a good turnout we got lots of valuable things done.  There wasn’t much doubt about who won the Chocolate Easter Egg Hunt! Thanks to all who managed along.

In the meantime the Photos Page link will be left in place as a way of looking back to previous photo collections, but I’ll hope to move them over to the new Galleries area if it proves reliable and popular.
