The village has been hit rather hard in the last six months with the loss & closure of Mother Hubbard's and G&D Sinclairs the butcher. Its going to be a real loss to the community, as well as for the representation of small independent village businesses helping keep Torphins alive. It has motivated David and I to give local businesses and village community groups an opportunity to connect with the villagers.
If anyone has a chance to lend a little bit of time please take a moment to post a message of support with Aberdeenshire Council by the 24th of March 2011. You can submit your comments by following the link http://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/planning/apps/detail.asp?ref_no=APP/2011/0510 and your help is very much appreciated.
