In the November 2017 Newsletter, available in the shops on Saturday 28 October
The nights are drawing in, the clocks are going back, but have no fear - it´s time for celebration! The Kinross-shire Winter Festival will be taking place throughout November and December, with events ranging from a performance of Handel´s Messiah in a day to the annual Festive Street Market and Light Up Kinross. There´ll be something for everyone and plenty of fun to be had, so why not banish those winter blues and join in? You´ll find details of November´s festival events in your Newsletter.
With lots of building and redevelopment going on in Kinross at the moment, it´s important that the community is aware of how ongoing work is progressing, and what further changes are in the pipeline. This month we have topical articles on the development of the former High School site (complete with an aerial photograph), and the proposed placing of a new Puffin crossing at the southern end of Kinross High Street. This includes plans of exactly how the High Street will need to change to accommodate the new crossing. The Council is asking for your opinion, so if you want to have your say, pick up a copy of the Newsletter!
It´s reassuring to know that a life-saving piece of equipment was recently installed in Kinross town centre. A cardiac defibrillator has been placed on the side wall of Hunters of Kinross, following a fundraising campaign begun by Pamela Hunter. Pamela also organised "Superhero Saturday" to mark the Installation of the defibrillator, which was well attended by smart young superheroes in all their exotic finery! Read all about the event and see the full-colour photograph of Kinross-shire´s super-kids, in your Newsletter.
And finally, as always you´ll also find our usual mix of councillors´ reports, local and community news, views, sport and features. The Newsletter is your essential guide to what´s happening in and around Kinross-shire, so don´t miss out on the fun - make sure you get your copy!
Enjoy your Newsletter - all the best from the Team, until next month.
