In the December 2018 Newsletter, available in the shops on Saturday 1 December...
Here we are once again, with Christmas just around the corner. How the year flies by, and how fortunate that your Newsletter is on hand to guide you through the festive season! We have a full list of Christmas and New Year opening times for local organisations and amenities, plus the schedule of Santa´s visits around Kinross-shire. And of course, if you want to know what´s going on in and around our county over the Christmas period, make sure you pick up your copy!
The Remembrance events around Kinross-shire were particularly poignant this November, it being all of 100 years since the end of the First World War. We have a photo page devoted to the ceremonies, to help mark this unique occasion. On a more contemporary note, the elderly of Kinross-shire are being encouraged to get on their bicycles (or in this case, tricycle "trishaws"), to venture out and about in our countryside. Local volunteers are being trained by Cycling Without Age Scotland, and all rides are free. If you´re "of a certain age" and fancy an exhilarating trishaw ride, you´ll find full details in your Newsletter.
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!
And finally, the Newsletter Team would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Remember, there´s no Newsletter in January, so we´ll be with you again for the February issue.
