Have you been affected by the recent flooding?

We have been posting information on our website details of the help and assistance available to the affected households in Ballater and Aboyne and we had assumed (wrongly) that the information would also apply to residents similarly affected in Alford.  On contacting the Council we were informed the information published only applied to Ballater and Aboyne.
Whilst we know that Alford was not as badly affected as Deeside, we know that some people were very badly affected in Alford. The local council office are trying to find out the number of residents affected by the recent flooding with the aim to see if they need to set up a meeting to assist residents in the way they have in Ballater and Aboyne.
If you have been affected, phone the Aberdeenshire Council office in Alford (019755 64803)
