WHITEFORD HAILS EXAMPLE OF BOYNDIE CENTRE

Thursday, 11 March 2010

"BENEFITS OF BOYNDIE CAN BE REPLICATED IN OTHER PLACES"
SNP Westminster candidate for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford has praised the Boyndie Centre for the opportunities it provides to people with special needs and the service it provides to the whole community.

The SNP candidate was speaking after touring the facility and meeting with Boyndie Trust General Manager Duncan Leece. Dr Whiteford also met with staff and volunteers at the popular Banffshire facility.

Speaking after her visit to the Boyndie Centre, Dr Whiteford said:

"The Boyndie Trust's Old School Visitor Centre is one of Banffshire's most popular visitor attractions, and has been a real success story in terms of the opportunities it offers people with special needs, and the service it provides in the community. There's no doubt the restaurant is one of the best places to sample local produce, and is excellent value.

"I also had a chance to see what happens behind the scenes, and enjoyed meeting staff and volunteers. When I visited, the men in the wood workshop were busy making and restoring garden furniture, ready for demand growing now that Spring is around the corner. We need to learn from successful social enterprises like Boyndie, so that the benefits can be replicated in other places."
