Each year these members elect up to 12 individuals to act as STP Trustees of the SCIO and these individuals take the lead in various projects which are deemed to be beneficial to Stonehaven.
However, we do not work alone and we have a good working relationship with Aberdeenshire Council, the Community Council other local rural partnerships and, of course, the local community.
If you have any ideas that would benefit the town or you can help STP to further its aims please contact one of our Trustees (see STP Trustees).
