Aberdeenshire Council are on board to build a new sports facility at Hill of Banchory adjacent to the primary school. This will commence in 2017 and be completed in 2018. To ensure the project is providing the facilities that the community requires, a substantial financial contribution was agreed by the Trustees be raised from the community. This will guarantee a six lane pool, learner pool , sports hall, squash courts , and other accommodation.
Years of fundraising via Bandswim and Banchory Sports Village Trust have involved many people, and the Trustees have worked hard in the background with the Council. So far the total raised is £675,000 towards the target of £700,000.
Once finished many groups and clubs covering all age groups will be able to utilise the facility and enjoy this fantastic development.
We still need £25,000 and your support is needed to complete the challenge.
"IT WILL HAPPEN" has been our message throughout and here we are.
