Awards Time

In the year of our first Green Flag Award, we are also pleased to have these.

Thanks to all those plotters, volunteers and friends whose contributions and efforts make these successes possible. We literally could not do it without you.

Pistols at Dawn

Irene’s persistent insubordination caused a wee bit of a fracas amongst the volunteers this week, but all was resolved by a traditional duel in the rain.

In the end nobody got shot, not even a deer (yet).

In between we even managed to get some work done.

The new bin will be used for grass cuttings in the coming season. Plotters are welcome to take them at add to their plot compost bins. They are great for generating heat in a new pile – when used sparingly.

All in all it has been a great week and our volunteers have again excelled themselves in their efforts on our behalf. Thanks go to all involved.

Losses from Plots

We have suffered from a wee spate of thefts from plots over this season – rather more than for many years. Items taken include: tools, bird feeders, a bicycle, compost bins, hoops and coverings, hoses, produce, etc.

So, a word to the wise, please be aware the problem seems to be ongoing and therefore it is worth taking a bit more care. Also, if you do lose something, please:

  • let a member of the committee know so we can monitor the scale of the problem
  • inform the Police in the case of a break-in and theft
  • as I say, take additional measures to take care of what you can.

If you have practical ideas that would enhance our site security we would be delighted to have them.

Apple Bonus

Mrs Ingster and family have a surplus of apples this year and generously thought plotters and volunteers might have a use for some.

Please feel free to help yourselves from the Octagon.

Alpaca Poo Pricing Consternation

Apparently negotiations took on Brexit-like tensions at one point during the delivery of our first consignment of Alpaca Poo.

Nah, only kidding, all went smoothly and everyone seems pleased with their deliveries. Hopefully, we will see more deliveries on the future. Thanks go to Mari-Anne (Plot 49) for getting this in place.
