Cinema Apologies for Saturday Matinee

E-mail sent by Banff Castle, Monday, 8th July 2013 @ 9:10am

Please accept our apologies for the cinema not being on for Saturday afternoon.

We rely on volunteers to do the cinema on Saturdays and unfortunately we did not manage to get one in time and it was then too late to notify you all.

If you wish to become a Saturday volunteer, we would be most grateful and can train you on the cinema system.

Please e mail banffcastle@yahoo.co.uk for further information.

Once again, please accept our apologies...we have never had to cancel a cinema on Saturdays before!

All at Banff Castle.

An Invitation from Banffshire Field Club

E-mail sent by Banff Castle, Friday, 7th June 2013 @ 9:53am

Banffshire Field Club would like to extend an invite to join them on a Field trip on Friday 14th June.

This will be a coach outing, starting, as usual for the Field Club, from the car-park of the school at Keith, at 12.30. We have a tour booked at 1.15pm of the recently re-opened Glenglassaugh Distillery, at Sandend. Those who have done the tour say it is very well devised. Afterwards we shall have the pretty run up the Deveron around Rothiemay, and stop at Marnoch Old Kirk, which played a key part in the Disruption in 1843. We shall also tell you more about a ruined castle, but we shall not climb over it, and then go for high tea to the highly recommended Forbes Arms Hotel at Rothiemay.

 
The price, including the coach, the tour of the distillery, and the high tea, will be £25. Contact Alistair Mason ASAP – 01261 812941 or alistair.mason@btinternet.com or even 14 Old Castlegate, Banff AB45 1DE
