❤️Volunteers Week is a time to recognise and thank volunteers for all they do for their local community, the voluntary sector and society as a whole!
Tarland deserves a special mention. This small but self sufficient community is always inventing and developing new initiatives no more so than in this current situation. Their Cromar Chair Share where locals can drop off and pick up anything from tomato plants to stained glass has been a real hit! Their "friendly face" delivery service of newspapers and food pick-up service working with AVA Member Mid Deeside Community Trust i helping the most vulnerable in the area while Cromar Communtiy Council is looking to set a a virtual village hall which will help accomodate 150 online villagers for Group AGM, ceilidhs, meetings and get togethers. The whole community has been involved and we want to say thank you and Happy #VolunteersWeekScot !

Volunteers Week is a time to recognise and thank volunteers for all they do for local communities, the volutnary sector and society as a whole!

Today AVA Member Aboyne Mens Shed deserve a special mention. They have travelled a long road over the last four years and we have been by their side every step of the way. A dedicated team of volunteers have driven this project forward with guts and determination investing in thousands of hours of their time. With only a few weeks left of build for their downstairs workshop to be completed they are keen to get things moving again once lockdown lifts so that the whole community can enjoy the completed Aboyne and Mid-Deeside Community Shed. Thank you and Happy #VolunteersWeekScot ! Aboyne Mens Shed

Have you noticed that the countryside has being blighted with people’s junk even more than usual during the past few months?

Flytipping is illegal, ugly and dangerous and recently farmers’ fields, laybys and lanes have become hot spots for DIY remnants, unwanted furniture and garden waste and the rural community, landscape, livestock and wildlife is suffering for it.

Did you know that when you dump your rubbish on private land such as in fields, gateways, woodlands, and some roadsides it is the landowner or farmers responsibility to have it removed – and to foot the bill for doing so! The costs involved are huge and it takes time to clear away the rubbish responsibly, can block access, and can cause issues around health and safety.

At a time when farmers and rural businesses are working harder than ever to produce vital food supplies, protect the environment and support jobs in their local communities, this is an unnecessary burden to deal with.

Please care for the countryside, don't be selfish and take responsibility for your own rubbish!

We urge anyone who notices or witnesses flytipping to report it. This can be done in a number of ways, including through the online form hosted by the Zero Waste Scotland website or reporting directly to Aberdeenshire Council. Or alternatively please contact us directly on info@dunechtestates.co.uk if you witness flytipping on Estate property.

SHOP BREAK IN
We were hoping to bring you a nice post of the shop refurb coming along with new clothing for the summer. Unfortunately in the early hours of the morning we were broken into and had New MOUNTAIN EQUIPMENT Men’s clothing, Dubarry of Ireland Woman’s Poncho’s & Jackets, Fjällräven Men’s T Shirts and Jackets and Schöffel Country Down Jackets stolen. KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED EVERYONE.
As if trade is not difficult enough during these Covid-19 times.
Stay safe everyone.

The recent easing of the lockdown gave rise to a number of issues which Aberdeenshire Council is keen to avoid in the weeks and months to come.

Residents and visitors alike were quick to enjoy some of the hottest weather of the year as the Scottish Government relaxed the Covid-19 restrictions slightly last week.

Following government guidance, Aberdeenshire Council stressed it had no plans to re-open toilet facilities at any of its parks or attractions and warned against any travel in excess of the recommended five miles.

While the vast majority behaved in a responsible manner while visiting a number of country parks and popular woodland and coastal areas, some demonstrated a blatant disregard for physical-distancing and the safety of both others and the environment.

Among the main issues reported by Aberdeenshire Council’s Ranger Service during their patrols across the region was the use and unsafe disposal of barbecues at many locations.

Following engagement with the Rangers regarding the current high fire risk owing to the prolonged dry spell, many either agreed not to light their barbecue or discussed how to safely extinguish those which were already lit.

However, there were reports of smouldering barbecues being dumped which posed a real threat to the surrounding area and other visitors.

Rangers were also left disappointed by the unacceptable levels of litter and rubbish - including dog waste - being left beside full and overflowing bins at many sites, most notably at Balmedie Country Park and the Bennachie Visitor Centre.

Philip McKay, head of Roads, Landscape and Waste Services, said: “We have, sadly, seen an increase in rubbish left by people taking advantage of the glorious weather and the very slight easing in lockdown restrictions.

“Keeping Aberdeenshire litter free requires us all to work together and whether you are using our parks, countryside or our beaches during the pandemic or not, the message remains the same: please take your litter home with you.

“We have been carefully monitoring the frequency of emptying litter bins and dog bins in line with their use - some have been getting emptied more often while others less so.

“So, if a bin is full please don’t leave rubbish next to it, just take it home and dispose of it in your household waste.”

In terms of the roads network, the Ranger Service reported that the main issues occurred due to car parks not being open at Forestry and Land Scotland sites such as the Bin Forest, Back o’ Bennachie and the Bennachie Visitor Centre.

Officers from Police Scotland patrolled the Bennachie car parks and issued advisory leaflets to raise awareness of both the dangers and inconvenience of parking across car-park entrances, farm access points and private verges and land.

The Ranger Service will resume their patrols again this weekend from Friday to Sunday and hopes there will be no repeat of the activities and incidents witnessed last week.

Meanwhile their message is simple:

• If you are intending to visit our beautiful countryside and coast - Be Responsible

• Don’t park on verges around closed or full car parks as this can be dangerous

• Plan ahead - if your chosen destination feels too busy, be prepared to alter your plans and enjoy a visit to another local destination

• Remember – council toilets, visitor centres and many car parks remain closed

• Take extra care to follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, especially on farmland, and abide by the latest guidance, including on hygiene and physical distancing

• Support our NHS, emergency services and rescue teams during this challenging time by avoiding riskier outings
