Plotters will recall GFAA joined Dobies Group Scheme last year, offering a 40% discount on orders placed for plotters and a 10% benefit forAssociation funds. Well, 40% on seeds and 10% on everything else.
Dobies (that is Dobies the seed merchants with one “b”, not the local chain of garden centres) have been in touch to say that they are going to be putting £56.63 into our association bank account at the end of the month. That is based on a value of £499.34 (after discount) of total orders placed with them by our members.
This is quite encouraging for the first year of the scheme’s operation. A total of 22 orders were placed in the course of the year. We joined the scheme a wee bit late in the season. The new catalogues will be available in September, along with a new unique discount code that must be used. Please note the old code can no longer be used after the end of this month. If you would like to take part in the coming year, please look out for further info in the course of next month.
Thanks to all who supported the scheme this time around. I have not heard of any problems or disappointments, but please let me know if you have any concerns.
