Supporting local community events forms one of the elements of the Scottish Business Pledge, which Flowline Specialists signed in 2016. A popular event that is held in the Aberdeenshire town in which our business is headquartered is Oldmeldrum Sports and Highland Games.
It is one of the best known traditional sporting events that takes place north of Aberdeen and has been a fixture of the area’s summer events calendar since 1930. Oldmeldrum Sports and Highland Games attracts thousands of visitors every year and all of the profits raised by the event are distributed to local charities and organisations.
Held annually on the third Saturday in June, the Sports features a full programme of highland games events, performances from local pipe bands, one-mile and five-mile running races and highland dancing competitions. In 2017, the event will take place on Saturday, 17 June.
The Sports has traditionally been officially opened by a famous face. Singer Frankie Vaughan, actresses Diana Dors, Lesley Joseph and Pat Phoenix, comedian Jimmy Cricket and footballer Bobby Charlton have all carried out the task.
This year, Flowline Specialists is sponsoring the highland dancing competitions at the event. We are pleased to be supporting this local community event, while at the same time encouraging health and fitness, and helping to promote and preserve Scotland’s history and heritage.
