The Rotary Club of Oldmeldrum welcomed Rod Gunson of the Formartine Partnership as a recent guest speaker.

Funded by but independent of Aberdeenshire Council, the Formartine Partnership’s role is to provide support to communities to improve facilities, help with grant applications, identify community needs and to support and develop social enterprises in the area.

It also runs the ‘Formartine in Bloom’ and ‘Formartine Beginning to Blossom’ initiatives.

Membership of the Partnership, which was formed in 1997 as part of a rural regeneration initiative by the then Scottish Office, is open to all Formartine community groups, community councils and residents.
