A Scout Group to be proud of...

Encouraging adventurous activities amongst our young folk - with every sort of pursuit from fishing, biking, shelter building, walking the Lairig Ghru, first aid skills, camping, sailing.... The scouts and explorer scouts run the Burns Supper every year and also team up with John Macpherson to run the miniature railway at Balmoral races to help raise funds for activities.

The scouts and explorer scouts are holding a special Village ‘Rounders and BBQ’ evening in the playpark (up past the fire station) on 28th June, from 7pm. Everyone is invited - young and old, and they would like to particularly encourage any parents with school aged children to come along.

Braemar Care

The Braemar Care team are delighted to announce that they are now a registered charity. Susie Farquharson is now in post as care coordinator for Braemar Care. The recruitment, interviewing and training of carers is currently underway with Aberdeenshire Council. The next step for Braemar Care is to launch their volunteer scheme. Volunteers can sign up and will be able to help locals by doing odd jobs like cleaning, cooking or housework, also take clients to hospital appointments and many other helpful tasks. To promote the volunteer scheme the Braemar Care team are holding an afternoon cream tea on Thursday 21st June from 2pm – 4pm in Braemar Village Hall. If you would like to find out more about volunteering please come along and the team will be happy to help with any questions or ideas you may have. If you would like to find out more about caring or volunteering please contact Susie Farquharson on 013397 41382 or email susie@farkys.net.
