In the May 2019 Newsletter, available in the shops on Saturday 27 April...
After a week of glorious weather it really does look like summer has arrived, along with the butterfly on this month´s gorgeous cover photograph. Even so, as our editor wisely mentions on page 2, "Ne´er cast a cloot ´til May is oot"! We´re still only in April as the Newsletter goes to press, and much can happen weather-wise over the next month or so!
Our lead article in this issue is the Council´s defence of Persimmon Homes, following allegations of infringements during work on the 350-home development in the Lathro Meadows area. A local action group, along with a local MSP, have asked that the council´s planning team conduct investigations. The situation that has arisen at Lathro Meadows is one that could well be repeated elsewhere as new houses continue to be built - pick up a copy of your Newsletter to find out more.
Moving from new builds to old landmarks, we have a fascinating two-page article on the Crosswell Fountain, located beside the steeple of the Town Hall on the High Street. This impressive structure, resplendent with carved gargoyles, was built in 1885 and actually has a time capsule hidden within the masonry. Intrigued? Then be sure to get a copy of your May Newsletter to read all about it!
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.
