December News


As we reflect on the past quarter, The Friends have been unwavering in our commitment to return healthcare services to our community. Diligently researching various options, we are determined to pave the way for a healthier future. Our committee additionally voted to provide support to two impactful community projects – one at Insch School Nursery and another at the Bennachie Leisure Centre. Anticipating the arrival of spring, we are gearing up for a public meeting/AGM to provide a comprehensive update to the community. Stay tuned for more details as we strive to keep you well-informed about our progress.

Acknowledging the quieter winter months around the hospital grounds, we've decided to spread festive cheer by donating our stock of Christmas lights to illuminate the village square. Graciously, the Fire Service has agreed to lend their expertise in putting up the lights. We are actively considering more elaborate plans for village Christmas lights in the upcoming years.

Regrettably, despite our best efforts, the recruitment process for a Community Coordinator proved challenging. Undeterred, we are revising the position and will readvertise it in the New Year with renewed enthusiasm.

Save the date! The eagerly awaited Strawberry Fair is set for Sunday, June 9th, 2024. We look forward to celebrating another vibrant and community-focused event.

For those who enjoy the rhythms of our Tea Dance, mark your calendars for the third Friday of each month from 2 pm to 4 pm at the Church Hall on Western Road. Charlie Esson provides the musical backdrop, and admission is £5. Join us for an afternoon of joy and connection.

Thank you for your continued support as we navigate these initiatives and work together to enhance our community.
