The Banchory & District Round Table have thanked the community for their support at the bonfire and fireworks last weekend.

Chairman Mike Sibson said: “Although we had to battle the elements to build the bonfire, the rain held off in the evening to give us perfect conditions.

“We would like to re-iterate our thanks to Bruce McCombie and his team for their unwavering support. His generous work underpins everything that we do to successfully deliver the bonfire night. We would also like to thank all of our kind sponsors and helpers, without them, the event wouldn’t be what it is today, particularly all the Guides and Scouts.”

Round Table is an international organization for guys aged 18-45, and Banchory is at the forefront of local, national and international Round Table activities. Immediate Past Chairman, Dan Broadhead commented: “We will be hosting an open evening on Thursday, November 19, for any guys that are interested to learn more about our organization.

“There are 20 free places, so contact us to reserve your spot.

“Urban Orienteering is a new event in our calendar that requires a smart phone and a sense of humor, meeting at 7pm in the Douglas.”
