It is essential that these new routes are supported and that we, as a community, use the facilities as frequently as possible. If we don't use them we might lose them.
The Community Council is grateful to Ross Thompson and his colleagues on Aberdeen City Council for the work done on behalf of the residents in Braeside and Mannofield.
