Hi everyone. Just to let you know our regular monthly “Business” meeting is on this coming Thursday 13th July at the Legion at 2 p.m. All welcome.
To update you briefly from the 2nd May blog post below, things are progressing again with the favoured option for a permanent Banchory Men’s Shed site and premises. Advice from those more familiar than we are with the planning process has confirmed our own feelings that Aberdeenshire Planning’s likely objections are themselves “unsustainable”. We are therefore in communication with the Planning department and hope to hear more by the date of the meeting; please come along and find out. We have also therefore put the alternative back on the back burner.
“In other news” and as some will know, the Lions in Banchory have closed (see here) but our friends at the Banchory Legion Scotland have taken over the well-known and much-loved monthly Book Sale. The Legion’s book sale will be held as usual on the first Saturday of each month, at the Legion’s own premises in Ramsay Road rather than at the Town Hall.
For the first such sale last Saturday (1st July), the Banchory (and District!) Men’s Shed took the opportunity to hold a tool sale at the same time, which raised some useful funds as well as recycling some tools, old and completely new, back into the community.
