In the August 2017 Newsletter, available in the shops on Saturday 29 July...
As ever, the main event for August is the Kinross Show, taking place at RSPB Loch Leven - as stunning a venue as you could wish to find for an agricultural fair! You´ll find a preview of what´s in store in your Newsletter, including a full programme and details of the free bus service. Oh - and also colour photos of gorgeous alpacas Nimbus and Macnamara, who will be making their show debut this year and are sure to be hugely popular with everyone!
On a more sombre note, we are sorry to report that a number of mature oak trees have been felled just north of Kinross, amid increasing controversy over whether PKC followed correct procedures in approving the planning application that led to their destruction. The removal of the oaks has been described as "environmental vandalism" - you can read a full colour article, complete with before and after photos, in your August Newsletter.
Also this month, we have a list of Kinross High School Awards, and two very interesting articles showcasing how Fife and Kinross-shire folk have been making a difference around the world. The registered charity "Haiti Help" provides for the support of orphans and others in need in Haiti, whilst Simpli Yoga has been helping to raise funds for an orphanage in India. These are great stories of hard work and generosity - pick up a copy of your Newsletter to find out more.
Looking forward to September, we have details of a spectacular Mary, Queen of Scots Festival, plus information on how to enter the ever-popular Mary, Queen of Scots - The Great Escape - Boat Race organised by the Rotary Club.
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.
