Funding - After our disappointments last year, we have had to go out for new bids for the building work, as the old ones had expired. A revised funding application has gone in to our original potential major funder. An application has also been made to the Garfield Weston Anniversary Fund. We should know about this one sometime in October 2018, and the other in November.
Meanwhile, we again manned our stall at the Aboyne Highland Games, raising over £700 towards the shed build. We have attended several car boot sales on the Aboyne Green. The latest was in August when we raised £112. These events are also a great way to meet people and to update them on our progress.
Our first AGM was held earlier this year. There have been some changes to the office bearers - the new positions are set out at the bottom of the Home Page. Thanks to Stuart Hall who put in so much time early on and got us started. Doug Riach has also left the committee, but remains an active supporter and associate.
