Please everyone come along to Fetternear Hall on Saturday 30th September for a charity coffee morning. Please bring your friends and family to raise money for a charity that supports many people.
After the success of the 2016 fireworks event, which was attended by 2,000 to 2,500 people, Newmachar Rockets are planning for the 2017 event. As last year, it will be a free, professional display which will take place on Saturday, 11th November at 6:30 pm at the Charles Gordon Park football ground. The fireworks event will be pedestrian access only, although disabled parking is planned close by.
This year the main fundraising event is a Race Night, which takes place at the Scout and Guide Hall on Saturday 16th September at 7:30 pm. Tickets cost £5, which includes some nibbles and a disco. Drinks on the night are on a bring your own basis.
All funds raised will go to the 2017 fireworks event.
The fireworks event itself will be similar to last year, and food and drink stalls will be available on site.
The display will be funded entirely by charitable donations and is only possible with the support of the community, including the donation of raffle prizes for the fundraising event.
If anyone would like to assist or get in touch, please visit the facebook page or email the committee.
As many residents of Newmachar will see on their travels into and around Aberdeen, work on the AWPR continues at pace. Many of you will be familiar with the view from the ground, but thanks to AWPR Transport Scotland we can share some aerial photos of the ongoing work around Parkhill and Goval, including the site of the new Don crossing.
You can get more information about the AWPR on the Transport Scotland website.
