There was also good news to announce. This included the McLean Hall Committee’s Perthshire Active Action Award from the Gannochy Trust, under the category ‘Community Asset’. The Award brought with it a cheque for £250, which will be donated to the Aberfeldy Cottage Hospital as explained below.
On display, as well, was the crystal trophy awarded to the Big Shed for winning the national new-build category in the Low Carbon Buildings Awards 2013.
The third announcement was that the impressive sum of £1,188.94 has been raised for Aberfeldy Cottage Hospital by events organised in the Hall! This sum includes the takings from both the recent, highly successful, Mid-Atholl Strings and Things evening organised by the Hall Committee and the Mulled Wine & Mince Pies event held before Christmas, which will be added to the £250 award to the McLean Hall mentioned above.
FVA Membership Subscriptions are now due for 2013, and many thanks to those who have already paid. The next event is the FVA AGM on the 23rd March at 4.30pm in the Hall, and the next Coffee Morning is on Tuesday April 9th.
And finally – nothing to do with Coffee Mornings – a little picture of a regular, but non-feathered, visitor to our bird table!
