On Sunday the 16th of June 2013 Operation Florian Members Alan Davie and Mike McDonald spent the day at Hazlehead Park Aberdeen where the Highland Games are held each year. As Aberdeen is twinned with Bulawayo we were invited along by Aberdeen City Council to promote the twinning partnership.
Ayme Robinson who is Aberdeen’s International Partnerships Officer, responsible for maintaining and developing twin city and international partnership projects for the city. Together Operation Florian and Aberdeen City were there to raise awareness of the twin cities, current ongoing projects and encourage others to become involved. They answered any questions that came from members of the public about what Operation Florian’s role is in Bulawayo.
Aberdeen City Council has been very supportive to Florian by offering opportunities like this and also donated funds to show support for their sister City.
