Alert - Unsolicited Packets of Seeds In the Post.

The following message has recently been circulated by NFU Scotland

Significant numbers of Scottish households have been receiving unsolicited packets of seeds in the post from China/Singapore as part of a likely scam.
Following contact with Scottish Government, it urges those receiving seeds to take the following actions.

If the packet of seeds has not been opened, please leave it sealed.

• DO NOT PLANT OR COMPOST THESE SEEDS.
It is possible that these seeds could be a harmful invasive species or harbour a disease both of which if released could pose a threat to agriculture and the environment.

• Do not handle the seeds
These seeds may have been treated with a chemical pesticide. Please wash your hands if you have handled them without gloves.

Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture (SASA) is collecting these unsolicited packets of seeds for analysis. It is asking for your co-operation to send these seeds to SASA.

Email your details and a postal address to info@sasa.gov.scot

You will be sent a pre-paid self-addressed envelope and zip-lock bag. When you receive the envelope and zip-lock bag please insert the packet of seeds into the zip-lock bag and seal. Then place the zip-lock bag and contents into the envelope and post it back to SASA.

If you receive further unsolicited packages, please report them again using info@sasa.gov.scot

There have been a group of boys age about 15/16 coming into the grass pitch beside the primary school and trying to break/dismantle the football goals. They haven't managed yet to break them, I have taken photos and have some names. Please have a word with your kids about other people's property - especially when it's for the community/kids. If I see them at it again I'll be phoning the Police and giving them the info. ... See MoreSee Less

No word yet.

I'm not sure about their system but I know the charity shop in Edzell cant accept donations because they all need to be stored for 2 weeks before going on to the shop floor and they simply don't have room to do this. Maybe the same with Lkirk?

They are looking for volunteers so it can open again.

Majority of volunteers were elderly so might be too risky for them especially since not everyone is adhering to masks in shops. No way would/should be expecting the ladies to be exposed to risk. 🤷
