Alford Mens Shed and Allotments

Mens Sheds have been a countrywide success and Alfords is a shining example of such an organisation. A combination of strong membership and hard work has resulted in a self-built extension and  allotments. 

Funds were secured from the Climate Challenge Fund to enable the work to be carried out and the allotments have show to be very 'fruitful': 1.4 tonnes of fresh vegetables were harvested between the months of June and September of this year. 


Marr Area Partnership was formed in 1998 by a group of volunteers to help local communities help themselves. The nature of our work has changed over time but the same broad aims apply: we seek to support communities in the Marr area to develop and grow in to thriving, successful communities with secure economic, environmental and social futures.

We are a registered charity and were set up, with the support of Aberdeenshire Council, as a rural partnership recognised by the then Scottish Executive.
