My name is Wendy Suttar and I am part of the team that makes up Cove in Bloom. Our aim is to improve the surroundings of residents and employees in the Cove and Altens area, and as part of this, we want to erect a statue to commemorate the fishing industry which is a large part of our heritage in this area.

Obviously, a statue costs a considerable amount, and we need to raise funds for this, and this is where you come in. We have a sponsored walk we hope you will support - in memory of the route the fishwives took carrying their fish into Aberdeen to sell in the market we will follow the coastal path from Cove Harbour to the Maritime Museum via Aberdeen Harbour. Lunch is provided – salmon sandwiches and a drink, and we will stop along the way to enjoy it.

We are asking for a minimum sponsorship of £10.00 to take part, and a pleasant coastal walk of approximately 6 miles to enjoy. I hope some of you will be able to join us and help raise funds for this worthwhile cause.
