Get involved in the new community plan

A SERIES of meetings are to be held across the Garioch Area to encourage community members to become more involved in the local community plan.

These meetings are being organised by The Garioch Partnership on behalf of the Garioch Community Planning Group. The first will be in Newmachar Church on Wednesday, February 6, at 7 pm.

While Ward Forums are new to the Garioch they have been very successful in other areas of Aberdeenshire, notably in Marr where they are seen as a useful opportunity to network and to learn from the experiences of other communities and community groups. The partnership will also be holding an informal information and advice session on the same day as part of its support to community groups.

Future meetings will include:

Ward 10: Tuesday, February 26, at Bennachie Leisure Centre, Insch

Ward 11: Wednesday, March 13, Council Chamber, Gordon House, Inverurie

Ward 13: Wednesday, March 27, Holiday Inn, Westhill

There will also be meetings at Kintore, Kemnay and Lyne of Skene at venues to be confirmed.
