Everyone enjoyed the Kaimhill Kid’s visit yesterday – especially the resident big kids!

A big thank you goes to all of our plotters who found the time to turn out for our last Community Sunday of 2018. It was super to see 24 on site with a combination of new faces and old lags.
With so many willing hands we got through a mountain of seasonal tasks, including a wonderful tidy up of the Primary Plot and raised beds, South Bank planting, lots of leaf gathering and pothole filling.
Of course, you can’t have a Community Sunday without a resident comedian: this time thanks go to Ron (Plot 65A).
I think we can say, a good time was had by all. Thanks again, everyone. (With apologies to Peter, Jacqui, Helen, Stan, Angela, Gavin, Trish, Norman and Mary who somehow missed out on getting their photos taken. Thanks too, to all of the magnificent bakers for a brilliant spread at Coffee and Cake time.
Today, we had the pleasure of welcoming Hazel, our most recent recruit to the volunteer squad, on-site for her first work session.
We had not realised Hazel came with a, “recruit one get two free” deal.
Joining Hazel for the day were her grandchildren, Maisie (aged 8) and Struan (aged 4).
What a team they are, making short work of raking up the leaves on the grass around the Octagon.
Hazel hopes to be with us on Saturday or Sunday most weeks as she waits for her name to get to the top of the waiting list for a plot.
Orchard Brae called this week wishing to visit our allotment site. They arrived just after 1 pm yesterday – one minibus load driven by Roddy. They stayed for an hour having a walk round admiring the many varieties of vegetables and flowers on display particularly Steve’s sunflowers – plot 37. We bumped into Gill at plot 29 who gave them some plums and rasps to their great delight. We stopped off briefly in the Octagon for some plums to eat and apples to take away. A very pleasant interlude for all concerned on a lovely sunny day.
Thanks to everyone who made it along to help us prepare the site for our IYN Assessment. It was wonderful to see such a good turnout on what started out as a very unpromising day weather-wise. A special thanks to Alice (Plot Micro 2c) on her first outing on a Community Sunday and to the magnificent bakers.
What a team!
