Nominations now open!!

Your Community Council, in Association with the Blairgowrie Advertiser, is inviting nominations for the 2017 Citizen and Young Person of The Year.

Both winners will be presented with an engraved cup courtesy of the Blairgowrie Advertiser.

Maybe a friend, a colleague or someone you know has made a real difference to our town, a group of people or even an individual. Someone who has acted outwith their normal job, perhaps as a volunteer, and has had a significant impact in helping others within the community. Someone who has gone that extra mile to help.  Sound like someone you know?  The Young Person’s award is open to individuals aged 21 years and under.

Nomination forms for both awards are available below, at the Library, One Voice Office, and in local newsagents.

Nominations for this year’s awards are open from Saturday 1st April and will close on Thursday 27th April at 4.0pm.

There will be a presentation ceremony at the Community Market on Saturday 24th June at which the winners will be presented with their cups

Recycling Centre Maintenance

Please be advised that there will be some changes to Blairgowrie Recycling Centre during works due to be undertaken next month.

From Monday 3 October, maintenance will take place at the Blairgowrie Waste Transfer Station for 6 to 8 weeks. The Recycling Centre will operate as usual, however when users enter the site, they will have to take a slightly different route round. There will be a Site Attendant on hand to help, with heras fencing in place to help guide users round safely.Commercial traders will still have access to dispose of wood, green and inert waste.

A press release has been produced, and will be issued to local news outlets. A notice has been placed on the Waste and Recycling News pages of the Council’s website, and the Customer Service Centre has been updated.

Please drive slowly and carefully with these works are going on, Thanks!
