Cold payment

SOME Gordon residents were set for a Cold Weather Payment last week. It was triggered on November 30 week meaning those eligible will automatically receive a £25 payment.

Gordon MP Sir Malcolm Bruce said: “This is the first payment this winter for those households which fall under the Aboyne weather station catchment area. The area was recently extended thanks to Liberal Democrats campaigning. While I hope that we won’t have a severe winter which will trigger lots of payments, this additional support will be welcomed by households who struggle to pay their energy bills.”
