The season is soon to be upon us… and there’s a great place to buy and support a local school. Friday night is Fayre night at Udny Green on the 16th November.
So after a bit of a break Pitmedden Church’s youth cafe is back!
We have our first session THIS FRIDAY at 7 in the Church. It looks like we’re all set for a night of good fun with loads of games organised, and it looks like some of our team might be taking a group through some baking!
We’re looking forward to seeing as many young people as possible, so if there’s someone you think might like to come along, let them know!
Come and join us for a relaxing afternoon of whittling in the woods…
We will have a fire to sit around and a tarpaulin should it be raining. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate will be provided to keep us warm and you are welcome to take food to cook over the fire whilst you whittle. The ranger will teach us how to sharpen our knives (please take your own knife if you have one) and show us some of his projects. He will guide you through how to get started and show you little tips on how to get the best from your work. If you have a specific project in mind you may want to take your own piece of wood. You are welcome to scavenge for wood as there is a lot of it at Haddo, but if you want to do a staff or something of a particular shape then it’s best to take a suitable piece of wood.
We have a limited supply of sheath knives and folding saws – please let us know in advance if you would like to use any of these.
Everyone is welcome, although we would ask that children are accompanied (and supervised) by an adult.
Please email vsohaddo to book. The session is £5 per person including hot drinks and a biscuit.
Sunday from 14:00-16:00
Haddo House & Country Park AB41 7EQ Ellon, Aberdeenshire
