I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

On Saturday 29 October 2012 Union Square Aberdeen celebrated its second anniversary and provided aboutaberdeen with some figures about the Aberdeen shopping centres activity. Since it opened there have been over 25 million shoppers and over 1,450 jobs created across retail, leisure and hotel sectors. This record 25 million foot fall equates to over 240,000 shoppers each week for the last two years. Union Square Aberdeen shopping centre continues to grow and in the last year has seen seven more new retail and leisure brands and a further two new restaurants opened. This includes the first stand-alone Hugo Boss store in Aberdeen and the new House of Fraser store which is the UK’s first buy and collect House of Fraser.com store. Whilst the UK market averageshopping centres have a vacancy rate of 12% Union Square Shopping Centre Aberdeen can boast an impressive 95% let by income and 93.5% let by space.
Ryan Manson, general manager, Union Square shopping centre said:
We’ve had an astonishing two years in Aberdeen. From being the new kid on the retail block 24 months ago, we have now welcomed over 25 million shoppers, as well as some of the world’s biggest brands to the city. We like to continually better our retail offer and last week saw the opening of the UK’s first House of Fraser.com buy and collect store earlier this month. In the same week, we recorded one of our busiest ever weeks. We believe that the brands on offer at Union Square demonstrate a strong demand in the city for continued retail investment and we look forward to another strong year ahead.
Aberdeen City Council's Convener of Enterprise, Planning and Infrastructure Councillor Kate Dean, said:
The success of Union Square gives a clear signal that the city remains a vibrant and successful destination. The number of retailers new not only to Aberdeen, but to Scotland, demonstrates the potential in our local economy and confidence in Aberdeen's ability to lead Scotland's recovery. The centre has helped to secure Aberdeen's place as a major shopping, leisure and tourism destination. This £275 million development, which generated many new jobs for Aberdeen, continues to promise great things for the local economy. A great deal of hard work was put in by the council, in partnership with city centre stakeholders to maximise the benefits to the city of Union Square opening and I am proud to see how well that has come to fruition.
