The Oldmeldrum Paths group is earning a lot of praise from those residents now using the resurfaced path at Redhouse Farm to the south of Oldmeldrum.

The popular walk was always difficult when it got wet. The muddy track is now topped with hardcore and much easier underfoot.


Mean, Speak and Do Well

There is a crying need for a safe cycleway and walkway between Inverurie and Oldmeldrum.  It has been talked about for years, but no action has resulted.  A situation now exists that a significant number in the communities wish for this to come about.  In the first instance it is the goodwill and co-operation of the local landowners to formulate solutions to justifiable concerns that they may have that is required. Their concerns are the community’s concerns, as we will require to work as one to succeed. Their concerns must be fully addressed, once they are known and the best possible solutions considered and acted on.  Involvement from able individuals and contributions from YOU is what will make this happen. 

Where there is a will, there is usually a way ahead.
