Portlethen Environmental and Rubbish Clean Up Group (Perc-up) met for the first time on Tuesday night.
They were very grateful to the Horizon Group from Stonehaven for attending the meeting to give advice on how to get an environmental group up and running.
Iain Thompson of Landscape Services and Norman Wright, Aberdeenshire’s Senior Waste Officer, were also on hand with useful suggestions.
Perc-Up plans to tackle the area around the Burn to make the area safer for children. They also wish to focus on improving Nicol Park.
They are holding their next meeting on Tuesday September 18 at 7.30pm at Portlethen Community Centre. Anyone interested in joining them is welcome along.
