A typical mediation meeting

We all want to be able to enjoy our own home, though sometimes, it’s not easy. There are so many things these days that can cause problems between neighbours – noise, pets, children, parking, fences – it’s no wonder sometimes things just get out of hand. Every so often, what starts off as a minor disagreement ends up as a full-blown dispute, causing everyone stress and worry.

Good Neighbours

In the run up to the festive period Sacro’s Community Mediation Service in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are running a “Love thy Neighbour” Competition. Residents in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire are being invited to nominate someone who has been a particularly good neighbour this year. 
 
Irene Reid, Community Mediation Team Leader said: “We tend to hear the stories about neighbours falling out so it is always heartening to hear the positive stories. It is a brilliant opportunity for people to thank a neighbour who has gone that extra mile in 2013.
