Doing it for yourself!

Our beloved pooches can’t managed to clean up after themselves so please remember to clean up after them.

However, if you’ve noticed someone’s been irresponsible, did you know you can contact the council  online or by telephone and report it to them?  The offence could land them in a big pile of trouble all their own to the tune of £80!  So let’s not do that folks,pick up after your pooch and keep the place nice for everyone and safe for the wee kiddlies.

Check our PKC’s page for more info.

Post Office Relocation?

How would you feel about the Post Office relocating?

Plans are afoot to move it to the Premier Newsagent which means a public consultation period is now underway in which you can have your say about the proposal. The full post-office-consultation info can be viewed by clicking the link and your comments are invited by the Post Office here.

As you can see from the information a full service a longer opening hours are promised as are the full range of services, which will presumably include banking, passport and car taxing services.

The proposed site is to be the Premier newsagents on Perth Road and will be under the management of a post master who runs 2 other such premises in Dundee.

There is only a 6 week consultation period and the clock is already ticking so please make your views known as soon as you can.

All change!

At the end of our October meeting Elaine Forrest stepped down as Chair of BRCC.  Our Vice Chair, Ian Richards , took over until he was officially voted into the position at our December meeting

We wish him all the best and are sure he’ll find it an easy fit.

Congratulations also to Brian Smith, another very active member of the group, who was voted in as our new Vice Chair. 

A big thank you to Elaine for taking on the role of Chairperson, for all her enthusiasm and words of wisdom.  We’re so pleased you’re staying on as part of the group.

We’d also like to welcome Robin Duncan as a new member.  He’s getting to grips with things quickly and will be a big asset to not only the group but to the community.

Robin Duncan

Onward and upward!
