Community Sunday Call

Our first Community Sunday of the year is scheduled for this coming Sunday, February 18 2024.

Community Sundays are a great way to get to know our fellow plotters and volunteers while getting some much needed repairs, maintenance and improvements done in good company around our site.

If you can spare an hour or so on Sunday 18 February at 11.00am it would be great to have your help. We end with a coffee and cake session at 12.30.

September Community Sunday 2023

Yes, believe it or not, it’s the third Sunday of the month again, and so the wait is over, and it is time to come and enjoy another Community Sunday on Garthdee Field.

The coffee’s on the brew, the cakes are in the oven, and all we ask in return is a wee spot of your perspiration on this Sunday 17th September to help us keep our site in tip-top, lickity-split condition. Details in the poster. Do come and share a natter with your fellow plotters and our ace Volunteer Squad.

Community Sunday Thank You

We had a good turnout for our August Community Sunday – despite competing with the Lionesses on the day. Thanks to all who managed along to help out – old hands and new. It’s amazing what can get done in an hour or so with many willing hands. Apologies to those who missed out in the photo sessions. Many thanks too, to our behind the scenes bakers and providers. We will meet again on the third Sunday of September.

Community Sunday July

If the weather cooperates we hope to hold our first Community Sunday in a while this week – the last two have been rained off. With IYN and Green Flag assessments upcoming, it would be great to have plotters, volunteers and friends along to help with essential site maintenance tasks and some special new projects.

Come Along to Community Sunday May 21 2023

Our Community Sundays are a great way to meet your fellow plotters and our volunteers and enjoy a good blether while we get some site-wide tasks done.

This Sunday we hope to:

  • Paint the new Cabin
  • Fill our ever deepening potholes
  • Tidy up the South Bank
  • Enjoy some fine fancies and conversational coffees!

We hope you will be able to come along and lend a helping hand.

Duthie Park Celebration

Representatives of Aberdeen City’s six Green Flag sites today attended an event to celebrate The Duthie Park being awarded with their tenth annual Green Flag Award. Yes, they have achieved Ten in a Row.

Garthdee Field’s third annual inspection visit is scheduled for Tuesday August 16 at 9.30 in the morning. Please put this date in your diaries if you will be able to come along. The Judges very much look forward to chatting with plotters, friends and volunteers during their visits. They will want to know and see:

  • How welcoming our site is
  • How well maintained it is
  • How we encourage biodiversity and green gardening
  • How sustainable our approaches and practices are.

Of course, we hope to have our site in the best possible shape for the visit to ensure we retain our Green Flag status and recognition as a well run public green space. All help to tidy up on and around plots will be much appreciated. If you would like to help on the communal areas please see a member of the Committee for suggestions.
