The next phase of Formartine Community Engagement events take place in December following the success of previous events earlier this year.

Police Scotland have teamed up with Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership to bring together more representatives of various services.

Local policing inspector Andy Scott said: “These are partner focussed events offering face to face contact with our communities to identify areas of concern and issues.

“Whilst it is widely acknowledged there is already accessible means in which the public can contact each agency, many do not want to attend Police Stations, Council Offices and so on and are not comfortable using social media platforms.

“It is often these individuals who form the majority of our most vulnerable citizens and as such the community surgeries will continue to encourage them to come along and address the most relevant agency with their concerns.

On Friday, December 6 from 10am till noon the surgery will be held at the Ythan Centre in Ellon.

From 1.30pm to 3.30pm the same day it will also be held at Turriff Primary School in the Community Room.

The event will be attended by representatives of – Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue, NHS Grampian, Aberdeenshire Council, Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership, elected members, Aberdeenshire Alcohol and Drug Partnership, Roads, Housing, Passenger Transport Unit, Aberdeenshire Voluntary Action, Citizens Advice and local community councils.
