New Milestone for Castleton Dancers

The Castleton Dancers, formed six years ago under the capable leadership of Marilyn Baker, not only keep themselves fit, warm(!) and mentally active but are a force to be reckoned with in raising funds for charity. In July they attained new heights by passing the £50k mark, money raised simply through taking a collection after their twice weekly performances in the local hotels. Many, many national and local charities are a little richer as a result of their dancing (Susie Farquharson, treasurer, has the long list). Congratulations to all the dancers. A big ‘thank you’ to all the visitors for their generosity. £100k target - next in line! (You too can get involved with social Scottish dancing, every Wednesday night, Castleton Hall, men and ladies, partners not required. Speak to any of the dancers for more information)

New Co-op

After four months of waiting, the doors to our brand new Co- Op opened, to much delight, on Thursday 16th August. The refit was a long time coming, and it certainly has not disappointed - with its gleaming fridges, shelves filled to the brim with food, and lots of fresh fruit and veg, the community finally has a Co-Op it can be proud of. The new look Co-Op also provides an extensive range of beers and wines and a bakery. Along with a wider selection of fresh food, plenty of store cupboard goods are available too. This shop is an asset to Braemar as it provides jobs for local people, and is far more accessible than having to make a sixty mile round trip to the nearest supermarket. The shop is open from seven in the morning to ten in the evening, seven days a week. Lets hope the shop can maintain the high standards it has set itself, as everybody is really pleased with it!
