"The burn was big wi' spate
And there cam' tumblin' doon
Tapselteerie, the half o' a gate
an auld fish hake and a great muckle skate
And a lum hat wantin' the croon."
Aberdeen Journal 12th August 1829
AWFUL AND DESTRUCTIVE INUNDATION
It is with great concern that we have to state, that the storm and flood of Monday and Tuesday se’ennight took a much wider range, and were far more destructive in their effects, than any similar visitation recorded in the annals of this part of the country. The loss to individuals is quite incalculable; the destruction of bridges, roads, and public works, is equally ruinous; and both combined, present a scene of devastation that can be designated by no other term than that of a national calamity. From the time at which it occurred, the ravages of the flood could be but imperfectly known as the date of our last Paper, but we have since collected, from all quarters, the following painfully interesting particulars, in addition to those formerly detailed.Write comment (0 Comments)

A group of Culter residents and members of Culter Community Council have released the Resilient Communities Plan for Culter. Community Resilience is an initiative supported by the local, Scottish, and UK governments. The principle is that communities develop a plan so that they can help during an emergency in a way that complements, but in no way replaces, the response of the emergency services. The Culter Community Resilience Plan group wish to thank the organisations and the people of Culter who have helped them achieve this, and thank everyone who has already volunteered to help if there was an emergency.
Community Resilience depends on volunteers and more volunteers are needed. There are information leaflets in the library about the Culter Resilience Plan and these include a form for those who would like to volunteer. Completed forms can be left with the library staff.
More information about Community Resilience can be found on the Scottish Government website: www.readyscotland.orgWrite comment (0 Comments)
