A DISUSED ARMY barracks has been transformed into a new home for one of Scotland’s leading children’s charities.
The Aberlour Group has formally moved in to a new facility at the Pinefield Estate in Elgin that will be used as a meeting place for struggling youngsters.
Young people referred to Aberlour by social workers will now be able to take part in workshops at the new centre – which the charity has christened as “The Shed”.
Aberlour spokesman George Flett said: “Although it was originally part of an Army barracks, the Shed has had many guises over the years.
“For five years we have been using it for storage – but we are delighted to have been able to transform it into a functional space where young people can come and be involved with providing ideas for its use.
“They have a blank canvas – it would be used as a chill-out zone and a space for arts and learning skills, but most importantly it provides a safe place for the youngsters to socialise.”
