Annie Scott, NEMP
"The website idea came about when I
met Stanley Milne at the annual New Pitsligo art show and he mentioned to
me that the Community Council had been given the postcard collection by Katherine Chalmers.
They were hoping to make them available to the general public. It seemed an ideal reason to have a
website, and fortunately NEMP agreed to it at a finances meeting last October.
NEMP has a budget for various projects which the 3 officers wish to undertake;
it is provided, as are the officers, by the Scottish Government, through the
Regional Development Challenge Fund, administrated by the Scottish Museums Council.
There are three NEMP officers and I'm the one for Aberdeenshire; there is
also an officer in the Art Galleries and one in the Marischal Museum."
