AGM: Tuesday the 7th of September
Our 2010 AGM took place on Tuesday the 7th of September.
British Heart Foundation Cycle
The Mill of Benholm are proud to be hosting the DC
Thompson/British Heart Foundation Cycle Ride from
Dundee to Aberdeen on Saturday
the 24th of July.
"Volunteers are urgently needed to help in the running of the
Mill of Benholm."
That was the message which came over loud and clear from a power
point presentation given by Mike Burleigh, Project Manager at the
Mill, to the monthly meeting of the Community Council in the
Village Hall on Wednesday night.
Work to start on Woodland Walk
The latest initiative at the Benholm Mill is the recreation of
the ancient woodland walks bordering the property.
In the (all-pervading) interests of HS&E, it will be
necessary to undertake considerable work on the paths and walkways
in the old Benholm woods before recommending them to the public.
However, plans are firmly afoot, and it is hoped that work will
commence this summer!
New Signs Erected
Our sign board was made for us by a friend of Benholm and
although easily seen from the A92 we plan to reposition the
new sign this summer. Thanks to the sterling efforts of our group
of trainees, and our carpentry volunteer, a full set of beautiful
wooden signs have been erected throught the Mill grounds. Well done
to all involved!
