Community links celebrated as campaign enters final week
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.
