Bervie resident Fiona Gibson, a competition winner from the What’s on Inverbervie/Watson Bervie Facebook Page give away, had never seen AOC perform before but said: “what a fantastic show, very well done to everyone involved, would definitely go and see them again”

Carol Morrison said: “Aberdeen Opera put on an absolutely delightful, uplifting and seamless mixture of Dolly and country songs in Inverbervie, so for a first night, brilliant! Would definitely recommend seeing them, great performance. You can see all the work that’s gone into that... Yes brilliant... Well done to all the cast and production team”

Audrey Forbes, spokesperson for Bervie Skate Park, added “Just a few words to let people know how much we appreciate everything that has been donated to us, this has meant that the Bervie Skatepark made approx £1700 on the raffle alone.

“Then we have Dolly Mixture to thank for including us in their evening of entertainment which also means we receive £3 of the ticket sales, which will be great as it was a sell out.

“We would like to thank the Bervie folk for buying the raffle tickets.

‘‘However, we do not want them to think that we will not be back to ask for their support again as there will be more fundraising events as the year goes on, once more a huge thank you to our donators without them we would have done nothing at all, BMX, SOURCE, Scotmid, SWELLBOX, Transition Extreme, 4 Down Distro, Ross Leitch and many more.
