As part of ongoing regeneration work in Fraserburgh, the successful Super Saturday events return in May to help promote what the town has to offer.
Following on from a very successful pilot last year, six events will be held in Fraserburgh Town Centre with each event taking on a different theme. These will range from fishing to sports to farming. There will also be a special festive Super Saturday in December, just in time for Christmas.
Anne Gostling, Super Saturday co-ordinator, said
We are committed to promoting Fraserburgh and the surrounding area by providing a series of six themed events this year, including live entertainment, market stalls and food and drink.Last year was a resounding success and we are looking forward to the challenge of making this year’s offering even better.
The dates and themes for the Super Saturday 2014 programme, supported by Aberdeenshire Council are
- May 10: Homecoming
- June 14: Fishing
- July 12: Sports
- August 9: Farming
- September 13: Food and Drink
- December 13: Festive
The first event takes place on Saturday, May 10, with the Royal British Legion Pipe Band opening a Homecoming-themed market at 10am. Visitors to Fraserburgh can find out about local attractions, take a trip down memory lane on wash day and taste a wonderful selection of high quality local foods. Tantalise your taste buds at the all-day cooking demonstration and try to resist the aroma of cooked-to-order traditional Scottish Pancakes at the new pancake stall.
Super Saturday gift and craft stalls will be offering their goods and visitors can take advantage of some great offers in the town’s shops, cafes and restaurants.
Enjoy a great fun-filled day out for all the family with music and entertainment to watch or participate in, and try winning some of the great competition prizes at the Children’s Saturday Shack.
Aberdeenshire Council Regeneration Officer, Gillian Bain, said
The regeneration action plan for Fraserburgh recognises that regeneration is not just about buildings and the economy, but about communities and especially an active town centre.
