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.

 

Promise of better days

Today was wonderful and it was great to see so many plotters on site in warm sunshine, but what a long winter we have had.  Which made seeing these little guys all the more welcome.

I am sure everyone notices them as they enter the site, and I have been aware of them over several years now, but I wonder if anyone knows anything about how they come to be there?  They are in such an exposed site, so close to the road, it is hard to believe they self-sowed there.

For that matter, can anyone help name them?

In recent years ACC has donated many thousands of other bulbs and it’s great to see them thriving around the site.

Finger Licking’ Good
