If you know of anyone (including yourself of course!) who could make a contribution to helping the Senior Citizens please contact Louise (651359) or Elsie (651459). Thank you.


The Masters 2014 Boules Tournament Report

A French-themed boules tournament took place in Monymusk village square on Saturday 31st May.

Boules group photo The second Monymusk Boules tournament, the Masters 2014, was a huge success. 188 people in 40 teams, most in excellent fancy dress, played boules in Monymusk Square basked in glorious sunshine.
Teams in fancy dress Teams came from all over the UK, and represented some of the sponsors.
Boules group photo There were many other teams made up by friends and families.
Musical entertainment Music was provided by the Athol Smith Jazz Band and by French accordionist Dave Martin. The village was buzzing with the sound of laughter and fun.
The final The competition culminated in a final between the Creoles, last year's outright winners, and Los Bouleros, the McArthur family team. It was a close run game with Los Bouleros, dressed as Mexican all-in wrestlers winning by 9 points to 7. Overall third was another local team, Load of Old Boules.
The final The best dressed team was Beef Boulegignon, from Kemnay, who were quite excellent dressed up as the cast from Allo Allo.
The Prize giving The Prizes were awarded by Lady Fiona Grant.

The final total raised for local charities and good causes in and around Monymusk was £8,860. All of this surplus was distributed within 5 days of the event.

The main sponsor was Stronachs, Solicitors Aberdeen. Tracsis from Leeds were also sponsors as were Optimus from Aberdeen. Pistes were sponsored by a number of local firms, Mark Paterson Builders, Kemnay Pharmacy, The Grant Arms Hotel, JPM Design from Aberdeen, CHC, Canso Subsea, LFH Engineering from Ellon and A & B Buchan from Alford.

Neil McArthur Neil McArthur who runs the event said:
"I would just like to thank our sponsors and the large number of residents who all contributed in so many different ways to make the day such a success. As always we are grateful to Sir Archie and Lady Grant for the use of the Square, and to the Square residents who put up with us for 11 hours without a single complaint. Everyone who took part or helped should take a bow! Questions are already being asked about the date for 2015!"

Formal Opening

The Opening Event was a great success. Aberdeenshire Provost Jill Webster toured the displays set up by twelve hall-user groups before formally re-opening the refurbished Hall by unveiling a plaque which acknowledges the very significant financial contributions we received from the LEADER Programme and Aberdeenshire Council. Hall Chairman Alan Sibbald thanked the Provost before thanking the financial institutions that provided funding and the folk from the Hall Committee and the Community (especially the Thrift Shop ladies) for the hard work they put in to complete the funding.

The success of the event was all down to great teamwork from everyone who was involved.

These photos from the event, include the Hall Chairman taking tea with the Provost!
