Com­mu­nity links cel­e­brated as cam­paign en­ters fi­nal week

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen) - - NEWS -

Young­sters from a north­east school sparked an un­usual “chain” of events to mark the fi­nal week of Friends of An­chor’s 20for20 voy­age.

Pupils from Fer­ry­hill Pri­mary School were win­ners of the char­ity’s school de­sign com­pe­ti­tion, and to cel­e­brate their achieve­ment, they ar­rived at Duthie Park to cre­ate one of the long­est hu­man chains the park has seen.

With some adorned in their per­son­ally-cre­ated su­per­hero masks, more than 150 chil­dren took part be­fore trans­form­ing the chain into the shape of an an­chor.

The for­ma­tions were by staff at Kin­loch Lodge, which held a star for seven years

Is­abella Macdon­ald said: “We are so sad not to have re­tained our pre­cious Miche­lin star af­ter all this time.

“Our won­der­ful team of chefs, headed up for 10 years by Mar­cello Tully, are as bril­liant and ded­i­cated as ever and we will con­tinue to do what we do best – pro­vide de­li­cious and won­der­ful food in our own unique style.

“Yes­ter­day we were all so very happy and proud of our busi­ness and what we do and we still feel ex­actly the same to­day.

“The sil­ver lin­ing is that our dear friend Michael Smith at Loch Bay has been awarded a star and we could not be hap­pier for him and his team.

“Skye con­tin­ues to be a des­ti­na­tion for food lovers around the world,” she added.

A new restau­rant in Lon­don was awarded the ul­ti­mate prize – three Miche­lin stars.

The Araki sushi restau­rant has just nine seats, but a meal costs £300 per per­son.
