As we approach the Summer and hopefully a spell of good weather, your Community Council are feeling a bit lonely.

Our meetings are public meetings, but are sadly lack- ing in the public being there, so we would like to take this opportunity to ask you to please come along and give your input on local issues and concerns. We are your voice on key issues that affect the local community, and a link with Perth & Kinross Council. Our meetings are attended by our local Perth & Kinross Councillors, so again a great opportunity for you to speak to them on a one to one basis, and put the issues that you feel are important on the table. Members of the Community Council also attend the Community Engagement Forum where we meet once a quarter with representatives from the operators at Binn Farm, SEPA, Perth & Kinross Council, and other Community Councils who have an interest in what goes on at Binn Farm. This and other actions have been effective in reducing the odour problems that have affected the village in the past. If you cannot make it to our meetings, which currently are held in The Pavilion at Powrie Park, please contact us on abernethycommunitycouncil@pkc.gov.uk, or contact one of your Community Councillors.

Which brings us to another point, at the moment we display the CC minutes on the village notice boards outside the surgery in Abernethy, and on the village green in Aberargie – is this enough? – How would you like us to communicate with you? Please use the above email address to let us know what you think – even if you think we shouldn’t bother to communicate.

 There are a number of events in the offing that will affect the village:-

And Finally:-

I guess by now you get the message, we live in a beautiful part of God’s Country; let’s not allow the mindless minority to spoil it for us.

We look forward to seeing you at our next meetings.

Please note there is no meeting in July.
