Friends of Aden to Hold Open Evening Event
Having nearly reached its first year of operation, the Friends of Aden Country Park would like to invite local folk along to an open evening event, to be held in the Aden Park Theatre, inside the Aberdeenshire Farming Museum, on Tuesday 26th February at 19:30.
The aim of the evening event is to show all interested parties what the Friends group have achieved in the first year of operation and to talk through the plans for the forthcoming year.
One of the key success stories this year has been the opening of the Aden Gift Shop which has been run by the Friends of Aden in partnership with the Willowbank Day Services. All money raised in the shop going back into the park to help pay for and improve future park events and facilities.
The Aden Gift Shop will be open during our open evening so that we can both show the wide selection of locally made arts and crafts, books, music, souvenirs, and children's toys that we sell, as well as highlighting the opportunity to be involved with this successful venture.
We will also be promoting what forthcoming events and developments are happening in Aden Country Park including the Mother’s Day Fair, Aden Bike Challenge, MACBI Fun Run, and the Rural Life Heritage Fair. Developments include the Aden Allotments and Community Gardens project, along with information on a funding application to improve the children’s play area within the park.
Tea and coffee and some light refreshments will be offered on the night. So whether you’re keen to help out through some volunteering or simply want to keep aware of what’s happening locally why not come along on Tuesday 26th.
If you are interested in volunteering but can't make the event, please let us know by either dropping in by the shop or getting in touch by emailing us on
or phoning 01771 624268. Alternatively please visit the Aden Shop or the Friends of Aden Country Park web pages for further information.
