A call has been made for residents to help run a new Aberdeen community hub.
The Tillydrone Community Campus is due to open in the coming months, and members of the public are being urged to come forward to steer the future of the building.
The £6 million development, built on the site of a former shopping centre, will bring together a range of community services for the people of Tillydrone.
It is hoped the Community Management Group (CMG) will be made up of residents who represent various organisations, including Tillydrone Community Council, the Tilly Network and Aberdeen Lads Club.
In the lead-up to the opening of the campus, the CMG will help the council communities team to decide on policies to be implemented at the facility, as well as decide where services will go in the building.
Drop-in sessions will be held for people to learn more about what they can do.
The events will be held at St George’s Church on Hayton Road in Tillydrone on Tuesday between 9.30am and 11.30am and Wednesday between 5.30pm and 7pm.

Those attending will be able to meet council officers involved in the project, as well as visit the site of the campus.
A subsequent event will be held on Saturday between 9.30am and 12.30pm at the church, where members of the group will consider management structures and create a mission statement.
Aberdeen City Council regeneration spokesman Gordon Graham said: “We are at an exciting stage of the Tillydrone Community Campus where we’re looking at local people, volunteers and businesses to spearhead the project for the next few years.”
Ultimately, it is hoped the CMG can be supported by council staff to develop a business case, which will see the group eventually take over the lease of the hub.
As part of a wider three-year plan, the CMG will form a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO).
In the second year of existence, the SCIO will create their business plan for the takeover of the campus, before being given the lease in the third year of the plan.
