Bonfire Reminder

Our annual bonfire will take place on Saturday 26 March starting at 9am. Come along and help feed the stuff for burning onto the fire.

Make sure you take this opportunity to get rid if any scrap or rotting timber, branches, prunings etc and help keep our allotment tidy and free from rubbish.

If you’re wearing nylon clothing beware of sparks melting small holes in the material – best to wear old clothes.

Girls just want to have fun

We might even manage to have coffee tea and cookies available for the helpers.

Thanks, and hope to see you at the bonfire.

Thought-provoking

Happy New Year to all our plotters, volunteers and friends of GFAA. Good growing to you all in 2022!

I think this short, but powerful article will be of interest to all. It certainly got me thinking. Available via this link.

Keep Scotland Beautiful Newsletter

It was good to see a reference to our recent Green Flag award in the current edition. Plotters, volunteers and friends of GFAA can check it out in the web edition via this link.

Sketchers come calling

It was a great pleasure to have the local Sketchers’ group on site yesterday. Such wonderful talents!

Missing Pendant

Jim (Plot 65B) has been in touch with this distressing message:


My wife Lorraine and myself were at our allotment 65B on Sunday the 25th of July and she realised later that her her pendant was missing – it’s a gold shaped L with sentimental value. It is really small and we looked in our allotment and the top car park but could not see it.

If any one happens to find it and hands it in can you please let us know.


Please be on the lookout around the site.

Community Sunday Returns

It was a great pleasure to see so many plotters, volunteers and friends turn out for our first Community Sunday in such a long time. Thanks go to all who found the time to come along and help out on the day. We counted well north of twenty helpers.

Of course, it was not all coffee and cake and much work was completed around the site before the serious business of catching up with old and new friends began. I don’t think our site has ever looked better.

Thanks too go to Ron for his efforts selling our new range of planters, built by our volunteers. Sales and orders on the day netted over £50 for Association funds. A great effort all round. Further details of the planters available can be found in our new Online Catalogue. We are still accepting orders and some items are still in stock.

All in all we had a wonderful day and warm thanks go to everyone who helped get the new season of Community Sundays off to such a great start.
