Blown away by AGM

I want to thank everyone who turned up to make our AGM and General Meeting such successes today.  I am still buzzing with the ideas raised in discussions.  Or perhaps it’s from the free-flowing prosecco!

It was wonderful to see so many there and to get such positive messages and suggestions.  Wonderful too to get the two vacant places on our Committee filled with willing nominees from the floor.  My thanks and congratulations to Alex and Gillie.

Special thanks go to Bruce for his very interesting talk, Soil: and how to improve it. We hope to get a copy online in the next week or so for the benefit of those you could not make it along today.

Thanks too to Michael and Jacqui for the excellent cakes.  I expect we will see them on Britain’s got Baking Talent next year.  So, thanks again everyone.  Clearly, we are going to need a bigger room from now on!

AGM Diary Date

Stuart

Our GFAA AGM will be held this Saturday at 11.00 on the RGU Campus.  The short formal AGM will be followed by an informal General Meeting that will include a talk by Bruce Taylor from Plot 79 entitled, “Soil Health and how to Improve it”.  Bruce has just finished a Masters Degree in Soil Science and has recent approaches and practical experiences to share.

We have moved this AGM to this new time on a Saturday to avoid dragging plotters out on cold, wet, dark evenings as before and are hoping for a big turnout.

See details below.

 

Its Your Neighbourhood Success

It is with great pleasure that I can tell all GFAA members, volunteers and friends that at the recent Britain in Bloom hosted, It’s Your Neighbourhood Awards Day, GFAA were awarded an Outstanding Level Award and, better still, our first Certificate of Distinction.  Gill and Phil attended the event on our behalf.

Our IYN Assessors, Ian and Sandra Maclennan, were full of praise and warm words for your efforts and achievements over the season.  A copy of their Garthdee Field Allotments Association 2017 report is attached.  The Evening Express Coverage was very positive about GFAA.

We are obviously delighted with this success and I want to thank all who contributed to the effort over the year. It’s been a super season on so many fronts, but nothing could be done without the continued support of plotters, volunteers and friends.

We are planning to share congratulations and celebrations at our up-coming AGM and General Meeting on Saturday 4 November at 11.00am at RGU Riverside East Building Room 346. I hope we will have a really big turnout.  Everyone is welcome.  We want your help to set directions and priorities for the coming year.

With best wishes,  Stuart.

Diary Date – AGM and General Meeting

Dear plotters

Our AGM and next General Meeting will take place at RGU’s Riverside East Building, Room 346, at 11.00 am on Saturday 4 November. Free parking is available at RGU.
The AGM addresses reports from Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary, election of Committee members and amendments to the Constitution. The General Meeting which follows will address general Association business, specifically on-site activities and how these are delivered.
All specific points for agendas should be advised to me by 21st October for inclusion in the detailed agendas which will be circulated two weeks before the AGM/GM.
We look forward to your agenda items and to seeing all who can make it to the meetings,
Best Regards
Michael Hart
Secretary – GFAA

Community Sunday 16 July

Stuart

This coming Sunday – 16 July – is Community Sunday.  We are hoping for a good turnout of plotters as it is one of the last before our annual, It’s Your Neighbourhood Assessment Visit.  We want to get the site into good shape.

We will follow the usual format, starting at 11.00 and stopping for coffee and cake at 12.30 or so.  However, as a wee experiment we are planning to hold a General Meeting at the same time.  The purpose of the General Meeting is to gather plotters’ views on priorities and issues of current concern and for the future.

We hope this will be a convenient arrangement for plotters and will help improve communication within the Association.  I look forward to seeing you you on the day.

 

General Meeting Minutes (November)

Dear Plotters
Please find attached the minutes of the Annual General Meeting and General Meeting held on 11th November 2015 at RGU Faculty of Health and Social Care.
Please direct any queries on the content, in the first instance, to me.
You will notice that a quorum was not achieved for the AGM, as required in the Constitution. However, as no resolutions were posted for discussion, the Committee proposed that this AGM would lapse, and the next AGM will take place a year hence.
Best Regards
Michael Hart
Secretary, GFAA
