***Volunteering Opportunity*** Looking for something rewarding to do that supports the community? We are looking for new volunteers to help out with Fit for Friday. This is an exercise class open to people with a wide range of health issues and is delivered by a very experienced leader. We’ve been very lucky to have fantastic volunteer support through RVS but we’re now looking for some new helpers.

The role is helping with setting out, tidying up and arranging the tea and coffee after the class. Its a sociable activity – meeting people and chatting over a cuppa. If you think you might be interested please contact us at the Trust. You can Facebook PM us or give us a call on: 01651 843776



Come down to the Imagine Udny event tomorrow! Have a cuppa and chat with the team, anytime from 2-8pm at the Pitmedden Village Hall. Your chance to see the key ideas gathered thus far, and have your say on which should be prioritised #imagineudny

Protect your pipes – be prepared in winter

As we come into the colder weather, Scottish Water is advising customers in communities across Scotland to prepare their homes for winter.

Our winter advice encourages anyone with a home, holiday home or business premises to take action to heat, insulate and protect their properties.

Visit customermarketing with details of your request.

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
