Some­thing needs to be done to im­prove Cri­eff’s image through­out the year

Strathearn Herald - - HER@LD VIEW -

Dear Ed­i­tor, Well now that the Games are over, the nights draw in and the au­tumn sea­son ap­proaches fast, the next event could be Guy Fawkes’ night.

How­ever, be­fore that the shops, both near and far, will be re­mind­ing us that Christ­mas is not re­ally that far away!

We will be going up to the at­tic to get the dec­o­ra­tions down and see what needs re­placed.

Also get the Christ­mas card list up­dated and, let’s face it, un­for­tu­nately, some names will have to be re­moved!

The tree and lights will need to be checked as well – what could be nicer than the Christ­mas trees all lit up in the win­dows and cards on the man­tel­piece, wish­ing us happy and holy Christ­mas.

I do hope you all get a few cards, what could be worse than getting Christ­mas and New Year greetings from a no­tice in your daily news­pa­per!

Then the New Year – out come the prom­ises and resolutions, all made in good faith and just as easy for­got­ten!

But let’s hope that our coun­cil fa­thers, here and fur­ther afield, do not for­get all the prom­ises made to us in good faith?

Is it not time some­thing was done about the Ge­orge, the Star and the Drum­mond Arms ho­tels?

This is not fair the way th­ese prop­er­ties are bla­tantly for­got­ten about. Yes and per­haps, too, the new su­per­mar­ket!

Come on folks is it not time some­thing ob­vi­ous was done for Cri­eff?

Some­thing that might im­prove our sum­mer sea­son and our image?

I did hear of one Games vis­i­tor who could only get B&B for £150 per night in a well-known res­i­dence in Cri­eff!

All other res­i­dences were full or closed down.

Do we re­ally need this – I think not.
