Small Group Funding

Eastern Perthshire Decide!

Eastern Perthshire Action Partnership and Perth & Kinross Health and Social Care Partnership want to put local communities in charge of how money is spent.

We want to hear from community groups, groups of friends and neighbours, and non-profit organisations about projects you think could tackle local inequalities.

Grants of up to £3000 are available to put ideas into action. Your idea could respond to local priorities such as social isolation, deprivation, young people, transport or environmental issues or it could be linked to health and social care needs such as, poverty, age, disability or many other factors – even a lack of access to a particular service, or the transport people need to get them there.

For an application form or more information please email:, call 01738 477834 or visit or download one here.

The deadline for applications is 29th January 2018

Final thoughts.

There will be a drop in session for the consultation for the final draft of the Local Development Plan is on Saturday 9th December in the Angus Hotel from 11.00am until 3.00pm.

This will probably the last opportunity to have your say about proposals for the future of the town before they are finalised with PKC so please make sure you come down and give them your opinion and help shape the future of our town.

Let them know if you’re happy with layout, parking provision, amount of greenspace/recreation/entertainment/leisure/shopping facilities, community gathering space, road layout, access, density of the developments, provision for new doctors/dentists/pharmacies, . . .  everything.

Take a good look at the proposals and write down any issues of concern or support.  If you live in the Blairgowrie and Rattray area then this will affect you.  Thanks.

Minute Taker and community councilors wanted.

Fancy getting involved with the community and tackling the issues that affect the community? BRCC have a 4 spaces for new community councillors and this could be just the new challenge or interesting opportunity you’ve been looking for.  Why not make 2018 your year to make a difference, and make a positive contribution to the community, by becoming a community councilor?

It offers absolutely no pay whatsoever but is hugle rewarding.  We meet on the second Thursday of every month between 7pm and 9pm when we listen to an issues that the members of the public raise then have our meeting, giving updates on the work we’ve carried out or putting questions to our elected members.

There’s far more going on in the town than you perhaps realise.

Come along and see what we do or get in touch for a form to join our group.

Songs for Hamish

In preparation for the Hamish Henderson Music Festival on the weekend of the 10 – 12th November this year, 3 songs have been arranged for the Perth’s Gaelic Choir to sing.  

The arrangement was skillfully done by Philip Cooke, with help from Kathleen Cronie who assisted with the Gaelic pronunciation and word setting.

We can’t wait to hear what they will sound like when sung by such a harmonious group but if you’d like to have a preview of the works click here.

Don’t forget to put the date in your diary to hear it live in November!
