NOTICES FOR JUNE
Perthshire and Angus Mod happens on the 9th, 10th June in Aberfeldy. We also have a Gaelic service on Sunday 11th June at 14.00 hours at Weem Church. A sort of songs of praise in English and Gaelic with local singers and the local Gaelic Choir. A reading in Gaelic also. Quite poignant as Perthshire did have a Gaelic speaking population and Weem Church a Gaelic Choir and a Gaelic speaking minister. A special year as it is the 100th anniversary of the first Perthshire Mod in Aberfeldy.
The Strathtay Quilters have a stall at the Grandtully Gala - Sunday 11 June . A mix of competitions, sales and taster sessions, to promote our activities.
Also we have several kits for making fidget quilts for people with Alzheimer's which we are offering to make up for the price of £5 per kit either as a sponsor or for a family member.
MESSAGE ON BEHALF OF THOMAS GLEN, CHIEF EXECUTIVE, PERTH AND KINROSS COUNCIL
I am contacting you to invite you to an informal coffee and a chat with myself and a few of my senior officers on Tuesday 18 July 2023. As Chief Executive I am keen to get out and about to meet with communities. We will come with a listening ear to hear and understand the challenges, priorities and achievements of your groups and have an open dialogue about how we can work together in the future.
The discussion will take place at Lesser Hall, Aberfeldy Town Hall, Crieff Road, Aberfeldy PH15 2BJ from 12.00pm to 1.00pm. I do hope you can come along and join us.
Please feel free to circulate this to members of your wider community groups / sub-groups.
I would be grateful if you could confirm your attendance, if at all possible to Alison Mcintosh (email: email@example.com) as spaces are limited.

The Community Larder’s Social Supermarket is open at Offizone on Kenmore Street each Saturday from 11.00am – 12.30pm for customers to purchase dried and tinned goods at a reduced rate – 4 items for £1.
The FoodShare table at the rear of Aberfeldy Parish Church is open 24/7 and often has a variety of goods which would otherwise be sent to the Co-op’s bio-digester. It’s our Christian responsibility to ‘tend the garden’ ie our planet so we can all do our bit to reduce food waste by ‘shopping’ at the FoodShare table from time to time.
Remember, this part of the Larder project is about reducing food waste as well as supporting those feeling the pinch in these difficult times.
If you know of anyone struggling to make ends meet, please let them know about the range of options provided by Breadalbane Community Larder.
The Larder is a joint initiative of several local churches and also involves members of the local community. If you would like to be involved, please contact the team on 07513 652597 or email email@example.com
