Launch of New Police Non-Emergency Number

Police launch 101 non-emergency numberA new 101 non-emergency number will be launched across Scotland on Thursday 21 February 2013, and will replace the vast range of existing police force non-emergency numbers, including the Grampian Police 0845 600 5 700 number, which will be gradually phased out.

The introduction of the 101 non-emergency number will give the people of Scotland a new way to contact the police, seek advice, speak to a local officer or to report a crime that does not need an emergency response, for example:

  • car theft;
  • damage to property;
  • a minor traffic collision;
  • suspected drug use or dealing; 
  • information about crime in their area.

News from the Boat Shed

Happy New Year! 

Progress has been slow over the last few months, but the boat is getting closer to completion.  It is only really the painting that still has to be done.

The big turnouts of the first part of the year did not happen this autumn.  We lost a few people due to other commitments and, I guess, cleaning the excess glue off the hull is never as much fun as adding another plank.  However a few souls have stuck at it and we now have a boat ready to be painted, along with a set of oars and a rudder.  The seats and gunwales have been oiled and the wood looks good.

We still need your help – especially painters

Boatbuilders are still meeting 2-5pm on Sunday afternoons

To get the boat painted, it would be great to get a midweek group going.  This could be either an evening session or during the day.  We have six coats of paint to put on the interior and external of the boat, along with rubbing down between coats.  With the large wood burner and insulation, the boat building shed is reasonably warm.
