Susan Boyle praises North-east event in aid of Friend’s of ANCHOR

Susan Boyle visited Udny Green to help raise funds for Friends of ANCHOR’s Dream Big 20th anniversary campaign.Aberdeen Evening Express

Singing superstar Susan Boyle brought people from across the North-east together to help pay tribute to those who have been affected by cancer.

The Human Anchor Light event was organised by Kilted Chef Craig Wilson, with a special appearance by the Britain’s Got Talent sensation.

Hundreds of people turned out at Udny Green Church to raise money for charity Friends of ANCHOR, which supports cancer and haematology services at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

A variety of artists performed from fiddlers to well-known Scottish singers such as Fiona Kennedy.

At the beginning of the service Craig, owner of Eat on the Green, said: “Together we can find the strength to give others who have been touched by cancer or remember a loved one who has lost the fight.”

Susan, who performed Hallelujah and I Dreamed A Dream, said: “It is wonderful to be here and be part of this truly magical event, seeing the human anchor of light was very moving.”

The star, whose sister sadly passed away from cancer, added: “There really are no words to describe how fantastic it is to see so many people come out to support this event, and raise money for Friends of ANCHOR.”

Chairman of Friends of ANCHOR and managing director of Balmoral Group Jim Milne said: “I have to give my thanks to those supporting this initiative – Craig and his dear wife, who have come up with the event which has certainly been a big success so far.

“We committed £1 million to the new oncology research team, we had three years to do it, but we did it in nine months.

“We at Friends of ANCHOR have a terrific team and we do what we can do to help patients and research.”

Craig added: “I am so proud that we have done something so meaningful and that so many came out and got behind it.”

The concert was followed by a band of pipers and hundreds of light-bearers on the village green, who created a human anchor of light.

A minute of silence was observed for those who had lost loved ones to cancer followed by a brief firework display.

CHARITY CRAFTS AND STALLS – 9 DEC 2017 PITMEDDEN HALL

https://scontent-lht6-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t34.0-0/p280x280/24726599_10215075650714359_1978781401_n.jpg?oh=48992122b96cf222c2dc811993668209&oe=5A29AF3F

MAJOR HOUSING DEVELOPMENT AT BONNYTON AND INGLESIDE PITMEDDEN.

Aberdeenshire Council has received what is a called a ‘Proposal of Application Notice’ or POAN. This is the first step before a major planning application at Pitmedden. It is not yet an application but comes as a public consultation before they submit final proposals.

Aberdeenshire Council will not consider such a notice for many weeks or take any public view on it until a public exhibition is done by the developer. The public can at this early stage make any comments via the Udny Community Council and will be given the opportunity to comment to the developer at the public Exhibition.

One the period of notice is complete and comments from the developer are know with notes of public comments at their meeting, then Aberdeenshire Council will allow a full planning application process to get under way which the, then possibly amended, plans will be open to support or objection by residents and the community Council etc.

The proposal may be controversial with proposals for opening up the Ingleside and Tarves Road junction and creating a new access to the School Car Park via the Park entrance. Chair of the Park and Amenities Trustees, local Councillor Paul Johnston, has said that the access to the school park has not been discussed with the Park Trustees or any consent even mentioned. The land is owned by the Trustees and not Aberdeenshire Council who lease the car park and park from the Trustees. The Trustees have had no approach from any party or anyone in the Council and have no idea why such proposals have been made without their knowledge.

The meeting is likely to be in January
