Kaimhill’s Ace Primary 3/4 Class

Ms Fraser along with Mrs Grant brought their P3/4 class for their first visit to Garthdee field today and they made quite an impact. Their enthusiasm was very catching.

In groups, they enjoyed tattie planting, bean sowing and flower propagation and everyone was impressed with their knowledge gained in their classroom topic, Growing.

Thanks go to all and especially, Stuart, Gill, Jacqui, Phil, Graeme, Anja, Charlotte and Marion for their help on the day.  I think we can safely say, a good time was had by all!

Wagtail in Residence

Stuart spotted this Wagtail nest today in the line of containers by the Bothy

This sheltered, dry spot must have seemed very inviting in the days of a cold, late spring. The nest now has four eggs.

Unfortunately, now that this path is much busier than it was, the Wagtail is much more disturbed and we are worried that she may be neglecting her eggs, but we live in hope for happy hatchings.

Community Funday April 2018

At last, the weather relented and we managed to run our first Community Sunday of the year – and what a great day it was.  Thanks to all who managed along.

Fit a bonnie bonfire!

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!

 

South Bank in Spring

Our South Bank matures with each passing season and is beginning to look just great this Spring.

 

Thanks go to Michael on Plot 88, our plotters and volunteers for all their efforts and to Aberdeen City Council for their kind donation of spring bulbs over several years.
