In the September 2017 Newsletter, available in the shops on Saturday 2 September...
Congratulations to Kinross & District Art Club, celebrating 50 years of fantastic local artwork! The club was formed way back in 1967, when the Beatles brought out Sgt Pepper and flower-power was all the rage. Who would have thought back then that Kinross-shire would provide a continuing flow of talent spanning half a century and beyond! Read about the Club and its 60s-themed summer picnic, in your September Newsletter.
The 187th Kinross Show took place on a pleasantly warm, if overcast, day in August, providing a fine spectacle against the ever-majestic backdrop of Loch Leven and the Lomond Hills. We have a selected list of local winners, plus plenty of photographs to remind you of what a great day out was had by all!
Shortly after the Newsletter is published, the Mary Queen of Scots Festival will be taking place in the Market Park, Kinross. The festival will have its own royal encampment filled with the sounds and scents of 16th century Scotland, with spectacular activities provided throughout the day by the Clanranald Trust. Furthermore, on the very same weekend the Rotary Club of Kinross & District will once again be hosting the Mary Queen of Scots "The Great Escape" Boat Race at Kirkgate Park. You´ll find all the details in your Newsletter, but be quick - the Mary Queen of Scots weekend will soon be upon us!
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.
