One Year On

"I took the above photo on 24 March 2020 - the day we closed our fantastic new building. In some ways it’s felt that it’s gone in a flash, however at times it’s also felt like a long slog.

Looking back at my calendar on that day, I have one task - ‘Locking Up’. It was surreal – I was there for the whole day, with different people popping in and out to pick up PCs, chairs etc. and then, around 7pm, there I was standing in the main breakout space, looking at that fantastic space, the heart of our building, dark and empty – I remember feeling a little like the captain on the bridge of the Titanic (but with an exit strategy).

shmu Loves Local

Given the impact on the economy from the Coronavirus pandemic, local businesses need as much help as they can get at this time. In response to this an innovative new digital marketing project aimed at promoting Aberdeenshire’s town centres, supporting businesses and encouraging communities to ‘love local’ has been launched.  

The initiative is being led by Aberdeenshire Council and funded through an £80,000 investment from the Scottish Government’s Scotland Loves Local Fund which is managed by Scotland’s Towns Partnership.
