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.

Stuart

Bonfire!

It will be bonfire day again very soon. Make sure you don’t miss the big burn. Drop off your unwanted timber and brush this week. No plastics, carpets, netting or the like please – wood only.

Coming Soon

Harlaw Planters

Over recent weeks our Volunteer Squad have been building a set of planters for Harlaw Academy’s Parent Council. The planters will be used in an outdoor social area constructed for pupil use. It was a pleasure to drop off the planters this week and meet Mr McLaren (Headteacher).

Thanks go to Catriona Allan, Chair of the Parent Council for facilitating the build so well and of course to the many members of the Volunteer Squad who helped find and deconstruct the pallet materials, and build and paint the planters.

Thanks also go to the NHS Grampian Health Improvement Fund as the build would not have been possible without access to the refurbed Bothy and tools.

Storm Arwen Damage

Storm Arwen has brought more damage to our site than most of us can ever remember.

Certainly, others have suffered and are still suffering much great losses and inconvenience and our thoughts are with them, but you can’t help but feel that some of our plotters have been very unlucky.

Super Success

It turns out that even Superman needs to concentrate while Precision Keep Chucking!

The GFAA Committee want to say a big thank you to all plotters, volunteers and friends of GFAA who helped make our first Open Day within the Aberdeen Garden Festival such a success. Thanks for giving that most precious of resources – your time and efforts.

It’s not to late to order! See the Sales Page of the Website.

A special mention goes to Peter (Plot 29) for designing and staffing the inspiring NEEP Chucking activity, Irene for taking the free tearoom to a whole new level and to Ron for the success of the Planter Sales Stall. We bagged quite a nice wee bonus for our GFAA funds and item buyers were delighted with their purchases.

Hopefully, next year’s Festival Open Day will be even bigger and better.
