New hope for Hillside parents

A representative group will be formed to continue putting pressure on Aberdeenshire Council for a new school at Hillside.

The idea was first suggested at a public meeting in February and it was confirmed at the community council meeting on Tuesday that the group would be created following the local elections.

The group plans to have two members from Portlethen and Disrict Community Council, representatives from parent councils and nursery groups, as well as Hillside residents.
