For the Community of Methlick in Aberdeenshire

Archive for Apr, 2018


A HUGE THANKYOU to everybody who came along to the 8th Methlick FUNd Run yesterday.

We had another excellent turn out this year, with over 80 runners taking part in the 5k, 10k or children’s run. As ever we had a mixture of runners and walkers, some on their first outing in Methlick, some for years past. With the wet weather earlier in the week we had to amend the usual loop of the cricket pitch, but around 10 o’clock the large snake of runners set off on their way towards Gight. As you can hopefully see from the photos uploaded on Photobucket there were many smiles and the weather was kind and we stayed dry throughout.

As ever once back from the run there was plenty of tea and cake in the Scout Hut for everyone.

Thanks to everyone’s efforts we have raised somewhere in the region of £1,500 which is a truly fantastic achievement for our wee run.

A list of the first 10 runners back in both the 5k and 10k runs is attached. Apologies if names and times don’t quite match yours. Rather than printing out certificates, we decided this year to send blank certificates electronically, to help save ink and paper.

I hope to see many of you again next April for our 9th event.

Best wishes,

Ellon Cinema – Sunday, 29th April 2018

Ellon Cinema; Sunday 29th April ’18

The Ellon Cinema team will be back next Sunday with another two films for the community to enjoy:

Duck Duck Goose (PG) – 3 pm

Peng is a freewheeling bachelor goose who’d rather do anything than practice for the upcoming migration. He thinks he’s better than everyone else and spends his time attempting crazy stunts at even crazier speeds. In one such stunt, Peng flies too near the ground, hits a flock of ducklings and separates brother and sister, Chao and Chi, from the rest. In this unlikely meeting, Peng will begin a journey that will break his wing and nearly break his heart as he grows to understand the power of unconditional love in the form of two ducklings, who likewise grow to see him as the best father they could ever have.

Genres: Animation, Adventure, Comedy, Family

The Shape of Water (15) 6pm

From master storyteller Guillermo del Toro comes The Shape of Water, an otherworldly fable set against the backdrop of Cold War era America in the early 60s. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Doug Jones. Nominated for 13 Oscars this year receiving winner of Best Film, Best Directing, Music (Original Score) and Best supporting Actress.
