Local groups in Ellon are being encouraged to sign up to an event where they can showcase their activities to residents in the town.

This year’s Fit Like Ellon event will be held next month but local groups and organisations interested in holding a stall or in offering a taster session can book free of charge up until tomorrow (Friday, May 16).

Nearly 50 local groups and organisations took part in last year’s event and it’s hoped that even more groups will sign up this time.

The event aims to help people find out about the groups running in the town and ways in which they can get involved and allows groups to promote their work and hopefully attract new members.

A handful of the groups already signed up for the event include Ellon Library, Aberdeen and North East Family History Society, Create!, Ellon Flower Group, Victoria Hall, Ellon and District Guides, NESCU and Ellon Castle Garden Trust.

Organisers are also looking for volunteers to help before and on the day of the event and donations for raffle prizes would be appreciated. To book, contact Sophie Humphries (01358 726406 or sophie.humphries@aberdeenshire.gov.uk). The free event runs from 10am-2pm on Saturday, June 7 at Ellon Community Centre.
