Exploring options for tourist centre
Macmillan raffle fundraising thanks
The local Macmillan Cancer Support committee held a fundraising raffle in Tesco, Blairgowrie, over the weekend of October 6 and 7.
They are delighted to have raised £1243 and would like to thank everyone who bought raffle tickets and for all the generous donations received.
They would also like to thank staff at Tesco for their help and thecommittee’s loyal band of helpers who sold the tickets each day.
The Friday hamper was won by Mrs A Watson, Rattray, and the Saturday hamper went to Mrs C Greig, Coupar Angus.

The proposed closure of Blairgowrie’s VisitScotland Information Centre has not come as a surprise to me or the board of directors at the Blairgowrie and East Perthshire Tourist Association as this was intimated to us some time ago.
BEPTA owns the premises that the information centre is located in at the Wellmeadow and are disappointed that this is on the cards.
However, we have 18 months to look at options.
We are in conversation with VisitScotland and will continue to be so, as we explore every avenue open to us with them.
