In the August 2018 Newsletter, available in the shops on Saturday 28 July...
As ever, August brings us to the highlight of the Kinross-shire rural calendar - the Kinross Show, taking place at RSPB Scotland, Loch Leven. There´ll be plenty of livestock and shiny new tractors, but the show is not just a day out for farmers! It is a showcase of the countryside, with lots of attractions for all the family. Your August Newsletter carries a detailed preview of what´s in store, complete with show programme and bus route information. Don´t miss out on the fun - make sure you get your copy!
For those of you who like messing about on the water, August means the Mary, Queen of Scots "Great Escape" boat race! This popular annual happening at Kirkgate Park features teams of otherwise normal people racing in rowing boats to ferry their "Mary" across Loch Leven. If you fancy your chances, you can find out more in your Newsletter.
Builders McCarthy & Stone are proposing to build a new retirement development for older people in Kinross at the site of the Windlestrae Hotel. Before submitting their planning application, the company will be holding a public exhibition to give local people the opportunity to view the proposals and to provide feedback. We have an article about the development, complete with 3d plan and details of the exhibition. Pick up a Newsletter and have your say on this important local topic.
And finally, 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.
