Help in the Community
In October 2013 a group from the club helped to brighten up the local Allan Park.
Allan Park is in Cults and centres round a pond which is fairly overgrown. The children's play area is rather "tired" or was until a number of Rotarians from Aberdeen Deeside lent a hand to the friends of Allan Park to help with a Makeover. The children's play equipment was given a coat of paint to brighten it up.
To give the park itself more colour in the spring time 1,000 crocus and 1,000 daffodil bulbs were planted.
This is just the start of a programme to revitalise the park and make it a more attractive place to visit. RCAD will be involved with future dates to help with the project.
Another day hepling out at the park. The childrens play area had been "renovated" with new wood chippings to act as a soft surface is case of any trips. Not long after the chippings were put in place than the whole park was flooded and the chippings floated mainly to one side of the play area. A group of volunteers raked the chippings back into place. Job well done!
