Need some help with your pet, a bit of gardening, transport to an appointment or help with your computer? Maybe you just need someone to sew a few buttons on a jacket, put up a shelf or bake a cake - maybe you’re the person who can provide such valuable assistance…?
Three enterprising women are setting up a Skills Exchange, based in the Ballater Library, to allow members of the community to swap skills and save money

Faye Swan, who works in the library, said:
Information about the Skills Exchange will be put out via www.ballatercommunity.com and offers/requests may be added to the notes in Ballater Library via telephone - call the library and leave a message on 013397 55628. Contact can also be via email from next week to DeesideSkillsExchange @gmail.com as well as on Facebook – and who knows it might even go on Twitter.
It is hoped to extend this from Braemar to Aboyne soon.
A few offers already received are:
- Sewing (buttons, hems, etc.)
- Dog sitting
- Computer assistance
- Ipad assistance
- Transport to shops /appointments
