Friends of Aden Country Park Inaugural AGM
The Friends of Aden Country Park is to hold its inaugural Annual General Meeting on Thursday 15th March from 7pm in the Country Park Inn in Mintlaw.
Everyone who is interested in becoming a Friends of Aden is welcome to come along to the meeting where Chris White Buchan Area Manager will chair the meeting. The main focus of the night is to adopt the Friends of Aden Country Park constitution, appoint roles and responsibilities, as well as looking at how the Friends will start to make a difference in the much loved Aden Country Park.
The Friends of Aden Country Park group has been formed to provide the local community with an opportunity to have a greater say in what goes on in their local Park and how it is developed.
Discussions at previous meetings have focused on a range of topics including marketing and promotion, events, activities, current facilities on offer, the overall visitor experience, along with how various developments could improve the Park.
Friends can either volunteer on site, or equally from home in other ways. There are a wide range of activities and projects that Friends can be involved with, including practical tasks like improving footpaths, tree planting, and painting buildings; helping to organise events, activities and performances; marketing and promotion; fundraising; or helping in the museum or shop.
Neil Shirran, the Aden Development Worker said “The first few meetings have gone really well and it was clear from the discussions that everyone is really passionate about Aden Country Park and are keen to help improve the Park for future generations”.
