Positive news for Auldearn

Here’s some stuff we didn’t have time to post last week – more from the Auldearn Community Council meeting last Wednesday. It certainly is all happening in Auldearn.
The Lethen Hall is to get a major makeover with new central heating, insulation and windows plus decorating. The news was broken by Oor Sandy to the meeting. The retiring Convener stuck his neck out and suggested the work may be completed by the end of April. There’s also going to be something quite interesting happening in the Community Park by the school but funding confirmation hasn’t arrived yet so plans have not been revealed but Roger Milton (CC chair) seemed quite excited by what is in prospect. The clock on the Dunbar Hall has been fixed and will have a lighting system so the villagers will be able to tell the time in the dark. The work was helped immensely by local boys who set up the scaffold for the operation, otherwise the project would have incurred substantial extra costs.
Last but not least Oor Sandy’s lobbying of the National Trust to spruce up the area around the Doocot has finally had an effect and the Trust will soon be tidying up the overgrown whins on the side of the Doocot mound.
Opps nearly forgot that Sandy seems to think there could be a start on the Lion soon since there has been quite a lot of interest shown by folk who want to downsize. Auldearn certainly is a village where things get done.
