In the October 2019 Newsletter, available in the shops on Saturday 28 September...
We have lots of topical local news items for you this month, both good and not so good!
On the down-side, some lollipop ladies (and gents!) in Perth & Kinross are to be replaced by "puffin" crossings from early 2020. Also, the closure of Kinnesswood Shop is now looming, although a campaign has been started to find ways of saving the shop for the local community. On a more positive note, Kinross´s very own Raj Mahal restaurant has won a prestigious award, and it´s been a very busy and successful summer for the Kinross Trishaws Project during its first year of operation. Keen to find out more? We have full accounts of these and other breaking local news stories in the October Newsletter.
October also sees the welcome return of our "Serving You Well" feature, which profiles outlets who help support the community by stocking the Newsletter. In this issue we meet Mark, Russel and Joe, owners of Glenfarg Village Store, to find out more about this long-established shop.
We also take a look at the risks posed by blue green algae, which is a perennial problem for Loch Leven. Climate change and more regular occurrences of extreme weather may well be making things worse, so this month we have a two-page spread focussing on blue green algae and its effects on wildlife and the environment. Pick up a copy of your Newsletter to find out more.
As ever, 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.
