The decision has been taken to cancel The Bothie
project which had envisaged a youth cafe in the centre of Kintore, to be constructed using sustainable strawbales construction methods.
The decision came following a public meeting on March 25 to discuss progress on the project. Despite being well publicised, the organisers were disappointed when only one new volunteer turned up. How The Bothie would have looked if the project had gone ahead
“In light of the obvious lack of community support and interest, which was always recognised as being crucial to providing the volunteers to supervise the activities, the Bothie is cancelled,” Kenny Thomson, chairman of Kintore and District Community Council, confirmed.
