Fraserburgh’s community safety group recently held their annual general meeting, local councillor Brian Topping remaining as the chair of the group.

Councillor Topping is joined in his role by the returning vice chair, Mary Melville. Ricky Sheaffe-Greene will continue in his role of secretary, meanwhile, and Ronnie McNab is set to continue as the group’s treasurer.

Commenting, Councillor Topping said: “Obviously, I’m very delighted to carry on the good work we’re doing. Again, we’re hoping to have a successful year.

“I’d like to thank all of the committee and office bearers.”

This year, the safety group have again been instrumental in involving the local schools in the firework and bonfire safety campaign.

The group has also promotes the Pass Plus scheme, in which young drivers between the ages of 17 and 25 can sit a further examination, within one year of passing, and gain more experience, those who do potentially benefiting from cheaper insurance prices.

Councillor Topping has encouraged those eligible to sit the Pass Plus to contact the group.

Similarly, anyone who has an interest in community safety is encouraged to join the group. The next meeting of the safety group takes place on August 28 at 6pm. The venue is to be confirmed.
