Grow Greener with Garthdee Field Allotments Association

Its Your Neighbourhood Success

It is with great pleasure that I can tell all GFAA members, volunteers and friends that at the recent Britain in Bloom hosted, It’s Your Neighbourhood Awards Day, GFAA were awarded an Outstanding Level Award and, better still, our first Certificate of Distinction.  Gill and Phil attended the event on our behalf.

Our IYN Assessors, Ian and Sandra Maclennan, were full of praise and warm words for your efforts and achievements over the season.  A copy of their Garthdee Field Allotments Association 2017 report is attached.  The Evening Express Coverage was very positive about GFAA.

We are obviously delighted with this success and I want to thank all who contributed to the effort over the year. It’s been a super season on so many fronts, but nothing could be done without the continued support of plotters, volunteers and friends.

We are planning to share congratulations and celebrations at our up-coming AGM and General Meeting on Saturday 4 November at 11.00am at RGU Riverside East Building Room 346. I hope we will have a really big turnout.  Everyone is welcome.  We want your help to set directions and priorities for the coming year.

With best wishes,  Stuart.

    Well done to all concerned. Since moving to Aberdeen, I have spent several hours helping on my daughter’s plot and can only say I have been made welcome by plotters. I have my name down for a starter plot and can’t wait to be a part of something so special. All the best for the future. Graham Milner

    • Good to hear you are enjoying your time with us Graham. I hope your wait for a micro-plot won’t be too long. If you can manage, come along to the AGM (see above) on Saturday. It’s a good way to meet other plotters and find out what’s going on. Norman
