BARRY ALSO WANTS VOLUNTEERS TO REMAIN AND
ASSIST WITH A "GENERAL SITE CREARUP "
John makes a valiant effort to suppress the
"mares tail"infestation on his Woodfarm plot, I just hope it works for him.
John, to his great credit, has also deep drilled two other "empty" plots in close proximity to his own which were similarly infested with this pernicious weed. "way to go John" well done.
This is Mares Tail- it spreads via spores carried on boots and clothing as well,as tools. So please make sure to clean off any tools thoroughly. BURN ANY material. PLEASE DO NOT PUT IT ON YOUR compost bin.
Plots are available on many sites
PLEASE CONTACT THE GENERAL Secretary by email ONLY -ASAP to secure a plot
GY&GAA RENT REMINDER
Just a quick note. (From the General Secretary)
We still have members who have not paid for this year. If you are one of those please contact the General Secretary or myself to arrange payment, otherwise you will be receiving a notice giving you 7 days to vacate your plot. Its not for the Secretary or Management to chase for payment. You know the payment dates, its your responsibility to make sure you pay on time.

Re posted message extract from the GY&GAA Facebook page (26thAug 21)administered by GYGAA Chair Donna Millar
We are aware that there was an online meeting last night 20th August 21 with the JPH.
I have read an article which has been written as if funding had already been guaranteed. I want to let you know that this is not the case, but purely how the press have written the article.
The Paget have to do this as part of the justification exercise and one of the boxes they need to tick in order to present their case to evidence that they have covered everything required in their tender for funding, such as public engagement. They will not be completing or sending their tendor or Soc its called until next January or February, which is later than the original October this year that they were working to as Government has pushed it back again.
On that thank you for asking when you hear things, it allows us to be able to explain or find out more detail.
