A Broch councillor has hailed the decision to pilot a Police Scotland national initiative aimed at young people as a tremendous success.
Fraserburgh was chosen to pilot the innovative scheme to help young people get involved in the community.
It has proved very popular, with the volunteers receiving their first year awards at a ceremony held in the town’s Assembly of God Church recently. The awards were made by Police Superintendent Thomson, Divisional Commander for the North-east.

Commenting, local SNP councillor Charles Buchan said:
“The Young Volunteers have put in thousands of hours of community work between them, and I thank them for giving up their leisure time to help others. They have made a big contribution to Fraserburgh community activities.”
