One of the items on the agenda of the October meeting of New Machar Community Council was floral displays in the village. Dave Sandison, Chairman of Newmachar Garden Club, was invited to attend in order to express the views of members.
While some members of the Garden Club are happy to continue to help maintain floral displays in the village, their numbers are too few to continue without additional volunteers. Help is required with tasks such as planting, watering, weeding and dead heading.
With the shorter days and colder weather, it won't be long until winter is fully here. The conditions can make traversing the roads more difficult for all road users - motorist, cyclist, and pedestrian.
Check the advice from Police Scotland to see if you could make your winter journey safer.
