She said: “The community in Inverurie has worked tremendously hard in the past few years, particularly during the Bid process, to put the town on the map.
“We know that high streets face many opportunities but also challenges from online stores.
“As a member of the cross-party group on town centres, I am keen to do all I can to help support Inverurie.”
