New Hall

We are still keen to receive donations for the new hall.

The Virgin Money Giving page can be found here:

It is an excellent way of contributing, however much you can spare, as it enables the hall to gain the Gift Aid contribution from HMRC as well! 

Other fundraising opportunities include the Easy Fundraising site that enables you to contribute via the companies you use when doing on-line shopping. It is all set up, all you need do is log into the link, register and shop away!

The companies that are signed up to the page, will give us a donation for every purchase made through their site. What could be easier!!

See this very short video that explains how it works.

We also receive donations when you shop with Amazon Smile.  You can access Amazon Smile directly at or through the easyfundraising site.
In Amazon Smile, click on get started and input our charity number which is:

SC043007 (note all zeros not Os) then shop as usual. Any associated Prime benefits that are applied to that email address will be applied to your AmazonSmile account.

We are determined to see the new hall become a reality and a hub for the community of Crathes.  This is a real opportunity to create something that will serve the Community and beyond for many years to come.

If you would like to help, please make contact with us through any of the options on the CONTACT page.

We look forward to hearing from you.

The Hall

Crathes Public Hall is a wood-lined village hall just west of Crathes Crossroads (junction of the A93 North Deeside Road and A957 Stonehaven Road), three miles east of Banchory.

Originally built in 1929, the hall has been improved and extended in 2001 and 2012 . The hall is available for weddings, parties, concerts, jumble sales, dances, lessons, club meetings etc. ​​

The hall is 16 metres by 9 metres. Car parking currently exists for approximately forty cars.

The Hall Is a Scottish registered Charity with OSCR ( Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator) and is run by a Board of Trustees, who are all volunteers from the local area.

After a community consultation in June 2017 and a feasibility study,  plans have recently been passed for the construction of a new hall fit for the 21st Century.
