Motorists in Banchory will have the chance to have winter safety checks on their vehicles this Saturday (December 10).

Officers from the local community policing team will be at the Tesco car park between 10am and 2pm to provide advice and carry out free checks.

A crew from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and members of the South Marr Community Safety Group will also be there to give advice on keeping people safe throughout the winter months.

PC Laura Brown said: “This is a great opportunity for motorists to come along to ensure their vehicle is safe and ready for the winter months.

“We hope they will come along and take advantage of these free checks and to ask any questions they may have.

“We are extremely lucky to have both a fire appliance and the Community Safety Group on hand to give their own advice and we’re hoping that it will be an informative day for all those who attend.”
