New Premises

By: A.C.

By this time our readership will have noticed that we have moved from Spring Garden to Units G & H Kettock Lodge, Campus 2, Balgownie Drive, Bridge of Don. Photographs of the new Office and associated unit next door are on Facebook.

Comments have been made to our volunteers that the “big office” at Unit H is maybe just a little big for us. People have wondered how we don’t get lost walking from one end to the other. It is indeed a big space, but we do use a lot of the storage there, and there are generous plans for its use.

We know that many groups or charities that are in the area of disability or associated fields, are without somewhere to meet, or hold AGM’s, or just have a place to just meet up occasionally. Places can be very expensive to rent for just a few times a year.

Under the terms of our lease at these new premises, we cannot sub–let, but we are happy to encourage those charities or groups who have similar aims as ourselves, to contact the Office about the use of the ‘big room’ for these conferences, trustees meetings, or maybe some information days to publicise their charity or group.

Clearly we have expenses to meet in the lease, but a private arrangement between ourselves and  other charity or grouping wishing to utilise the ‘big room’ for the said purposes, why not contact us? .  

We would obviously like to encourage other groups to make our New Premises a hub for information and advice with these groups at hand, we feel that more friendly contacts can be made, as well as welcoming back our long standing users from Spring Garden.

These are the latest pictures from our premises as we are now settled in.

You can also talk a virtual tour (minus the furniture) in 360 by playing the video to get a sense of just how much space we have. You can look around in the video by clicking and dragging your mouse or maximising the video and moving your phone or tablet about, or even use a VR viewer!

    There is ample car parking at Kettock Lodge, and if you have been taken off Motability, there are two buses, that stop close by. The no’s 1 & 9. You can check out these links to plan any journey at For those who are not hampered by walking then maybe the no 18 over the Diamond Bridge which has a stop, and then walk up Grandholm Brae & Balgownie Drive . The distance is about 700 metres and mainly uphill. So that route is definitely for the walkers.

    A reliable journey Planner is here: http://www.travelinescotland.com/
    Aberdeen City have a route leaflet in PDF http://www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/nmsruntime/saveasdialog.asp?lID=41188&sID=11247 format that is a bit clearer than the bus company which is at https://www.firstgroup.com/aberdeen/plan-journey/timetables/?operator=19&page=1&redirect=no

    We look forward to seeing you.
