One thing that truly sets Fraserburgh apart is the strong sense of community apparent in residents of all ages and walks of life. There is a thriving collection of local groups covering everything from sports, music, drama, crafts, the environment, dance, religion, support, charities and social groups.
If you have time to spare and want to get involved in a new hobby, are going through a tough time in your life and would benefit from the support of others or even if you just want to regularly get together with likeminded people you will find ample opportunity in the area.
For young people, there are a variety of playgroups and for older children and teens, youth groups surrounding sports giving individuals the chance to try out golf, football, swimming and diving to name a few. There are also a number of church groups, the cadets and scouts have a local presence and the Junior Arts Society is the perfect choice for any budding actors and actresses out there.
For adults there is also a huge range of groups to get involved with such as the Fraserburgh Heritage Society who run and maintain the fantastic heritage museum and for those who enjoy they great outdoors there are various walking, sailing, archery and angling clubs to name but a few.
There are also numerous support groups based in the town or nearby providing advice and assistance in a variety of ways to people who may have physical or learning disabilities, who are suffering a period of ill health or are going through trying times. Examples include CLAN who offer support to anyone affected by cancer, the Contact Stroke Club who offer friendship and support to members in a relaxed environment and the North Aberdeenshire Learning Disability Forum and People First who offer assistance to people living with disabilities.
