The Buchan Observer is full of local news from the Peterhead, Cruden Bay, Boddam, Longhaven, St Fergus, Mintlaw and surrounding Aberdeenshire areas. News stories include school news, political events, crime reports, events, what's on in the local area, and more.
Local births, deaths and marriages are announced in the paper along with Aberdeenshire Council messages such as planning permission and building plans. There are usually wedding photos each week. Public notices also include local tradesmen adverts, birthday wishes and events.
The Buchanie usually has a weekly competition including the find skipper competition. I've had the honour of winning the find skipper competition where I won £10 and a family ticket to Codonas in Aberdeen with £50 to spend on video games and a family lunch from their sponsored prize draw.
