Chapelton: 2021 Review

As we reach the end of 2021, we wanted to reflect on all the activities and events that has helped us come together as a community. Here in Chapelton, we’ve continued to safely host events, celebrate our neighbours and support local businesses.

Here, we take a look back at the past 12 months.


Housebuilders and residents came together in January to enjoy a virtual toast to Rabbie Burns on Burns Night.


Some of Chapelton’s youngest residents enjoyed a half term treat with ice creams from Fits the Scoop in the snow!


Spring officially sprung in March, with beautiful rhododendrons blossoming on the Chapelton Trail.


We held our annual Easter Egg Hunt, with brilliant creations from Chapelton residents and local Aberdeen artists.


The popular Chapelton Farmer’s Market returned in May.  


Chapelton got Euro fever in June this year!


Some wonderful runners participated in the 48 hour relay to raise money for Pillar Kincardine and Portlethen Community Ambulance.


The community got creative with the annual Scarecrow Festival, organised by the Cairnhill Allotment Committee. We also held Chapelton’s comedy and gala night in August, raising lots of money for the Grampian Autistic Society.


Over 150 cyclists took part in the Chapelton Bike Ride in September to raise money for local projects.


The Boxes @ Chapelton grew in October as Fits the Scoop, Slate & Grain and The Omnia all opened their doors.


The last farmers market of the year was held in November, as locals grabbed some festive treats.


Santa came to town early this year as he stopped by Chapelton’s Christmas Shopping evening!

At Chapelton, we love to bring the community together. We want to thank you all for allowing us to have such a fun and memorable 2021!

Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

The Chapelton team.
