The old Auction Mart in Alford, once the hub of farming activity for Upper Donside, was closed in 1986.
Today, the building houses Alford Heritage Centre - an intriguing exhibition of rural bygones which give an insight into the life of the ordinary working people of Donside and the North-east.
The centre is a registered charity which is totally reliant on volunteers to keep it going.
The current team is seeking help in developing a new website, which would greatly assist its efforts to increase membership and visitor numbers.
This could involve people interested in website design, photography or/and research on local history.
Whilst they do have specific projects they would like help with, they believe in offering anyone the opportunity to follow their own specialities/interests if it fits in with their activities. They have a great collection of agricultural equipment which needs identifying, cataloguing, cleaning and restoring.
Anyone interested can go along and see if there is an activity that interests them – they will be made very welcome. They can contact Mike Hendry or Catherine Caseau from 10am-5pm Wednesday to Saturday, on (019755) 62906 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
