‘I am writing to thank you and the staff at the Dolphin Centre on behalf of 1st Kintore Scouts. We spent an interesting afternoon at the centre. I feel sure everyone learned something new about the sea life on our coastlines and we were happy to contribute our time to help clean up the beach for the other visitors.’ 1st Kintore Scouts
