LATEST UPDATE Monday 19th April 2021
welcome to all our members
Re posted message extract from the GY&GAA Facebook page administered by GYGAA Chair Donna Millar
Just a note to apologise
It appears some people are confused by my message regarding rent payment.
Just because I said members could start paying now, doesn't mean you have to and neither is there an obligation for Secretaries to start taking them, the idea is purely to allow people the choice and reduce the risk of grouping. I know a lot of you are paying or have paid by bank transfer which is great, but if you are paying your secretary, unless you have contacted them to make your payment, you will be told via a Notice on your Notice Board as to the days, dates and times they will be available.
I thought I would clear that up as some people think just because I posted on here that secretaries who have not put notices up are in the wrong. In my opinion a slightly small minded thought process given we are asking people to potentially risk their health to collect, so please don't give them a hard time for doing this, and I repeat if you want to do a bank transfer you can ask for the details and they will be provided.
In the meantime the actual rent dates are from the 1st March to the last day in April, so you can expect Notices to go up before those dates for some sites where they haven't already done so.
Thanks everyone and especially thank you to the secretaries and interim secretaries for doing this work, especially at the moment.
The most recent government advice is individuals may meet OUTSIDE in groups of UP TO 6. Please use common sense and don't abuse these relaxations.
Having said that-TENDING AN ALLOTMENT
