Hi, I am very pleased to say we are in the local good causes being supported by the Co-op. So if you are a Co-op member, please choose us for your charitable donations. They give 1% to the charity of your choice for the next year. In our case it will all be used to buy equipment to support the after-school science Clubs. This does not affect your divi. You will receive a communication from them asking you your choice and you click on that, or you can just go and log-in to your account which it will ask you to do anyway. When you choose your cause you may need to find us, as we may not appear initially. (They only display what they think are the nearest three to you.) So there are two ways to get to us either choose 10 miles as the choice (or more as appropriate) and you should be able to find us, or choose the category "Education and skills" and we should come up under that. If you do not know your password, you can reset it on the member's log-in page or you can phone them and they will do it for you. To give you some idea of why we are having a big push on funding at the moment, it is because we now have three science clubs, supporting four schools, and just to do one small mechanical kit build (which we are planning at the moment) costs over £400 for the numbers of children attending. That's over 40% of the money promised now by AVIVA. So help us out while you shop. If you are are familiar with easyfundraising.com, we are also on that if you shop in that way. Again the money raised is not charged to you. Finally, we are having a bag-pack in Aboyne supermarket on Saturday 2nd. December. So come and shop that day! And don't forget we have a talk today at 7.30 on how harmful eating patterns are developed. ... See MoreSee Less

Tohpins notice board has shared a link to the proposed bus timetable changes from Stagecoach. Not sure if this affects Tarland but it does affect some of the services to and from Aboyne and Lumphanan and I know some people use those, so thought I would post it here. Here's what Torphins say : "I think Torphins should have a lot to say about this! This copied from Loretta Ransom on Banchory Buy Swap Sell: fellow Deesiders, this is the proposed new timetable from stagecoach. They propose to slash the evening timetable, and have changed many of the bus times. I know for me, commuting to Aberdeen, this proposal does not work. They have a consultation session at Bellfield in Banchory on Friday 10th Nov from 3pm till 8pm. If you feel as I do please make your feeling known to Stagecoach before they make these changes unopposed." ... See MoreSee Less
