We have a growing band of volunteers who help look after our site.  Some are on the waiting list for a plot, some want the chance to work with other outdoor enthusiasts.   Like to join us?  Read on!

We offer activities from gardening to DIY on the wider site, or you can lend a helping hand on individual plots.

No experience is necessary and we offer training and support.  Organised activities happen on:

Tuesdays 10.30 to 12.30: Plotter in attendance, Anne Plot 92a
Thursdays 10.30 to 12.30 Plotter in attendance, Steve Plot 74
Sundays 10.30 to 12.30 Plotter in attendance, Norman Plot 81

From June to October some volunteers take along a packed lunch and stay on for an afternoon session until 14.30.

Other days and times may well be possible by arrangement. If you think you would like to join us, contact Norman at gfaawebhelper@gmail.com or 07702127346.

The Sunday Gang

On the third Sunday of each month, we have our Community Sunday Activities: we meet between 11.00 and 1.30, starting with whatever tasks need doing, then moving on at 12.30 to the important business of coffee, cake and conversation.  Everyone will be made very welcome.  If you just happen along, ask for Norman, Stuart, Ron, anne or Steve: better still, let us know you are coming and we’ll bake you a cake!
