This Sunday is our last opportunity to get set for our It’s Your Neighbourhood assessment visit at the beginning of August. Please come along if you can spare an hour or so to help.
You are cordially invited to this month’s Community Sunday from 11.00 to 12.30 at Garthdee Field Allotments. Tea and coffee will be served at 12.30.
There is plenty to do around the communal areas of the site:
- remove bonfire ash and tidy area (nails etc)
- weeding South Bank
- remove large weeds from wildflower meadow (if any)
- pothole filling
- orchard tidying (e.g. fruit bushes)
- dead heading daffodils
Looking forward to seeing all who can make it,
Happy plotting (I’m hoping for rain any day except Sunday)

GFAA Summer Barbecue
12.30 on Sunday 29th July 2018
Plotters and Volunteers, along with families and friends, are cordially invited to our Summer Barbecue at the community orchard area of the Garthdee Field Allotments site.
Please bring your preferred BBQ food and drink, and if possible a salad or sweet to share.
There will be a raffle, with proceeds going to GFAA’s purchase of a new secure waterproof noticeboard.
Donations for the raffle will be gratefully received by Gill Earle (Plot 64), Stuart Oram (Plot 8) or Norman Coutts (Plot 81); or these may be brought on the day of the BBQ.
Please send any queries or offers of help on the day to Gill Earle – g.earl20 at btinternet.com / 07951021319. Offers to loan BBQs, chairs or picnic tables will be especially welcome, and should be advised to Stuart Oram (cstuartoram at yahoo.com / 077866 48223).
Last night there has been a series of break-ins at GFAA sheds, and a large number have had padlocks sheared with bolt cutters.
Could you please:
1 check the security of your shed as soon as practicable, and where this has been compromised, reinstate security promptly
2 where things have been stolen, itemise these and inform the police yourself. This is the most effective way in which we can benefit from increased patrols near the site.
Thanks and Best Regards
Secretary – GFAA
