COUN­CIL­LOR Eve­lyn Tweed met lo­cal busi­ness owner Josh Stal­lard from the Olde Christ­mas Shoppe as well as Ali­son Boa from com­mu­nity ac­tion group Aber­foyle Vil­lage Peo­ple to dis­cuss con­cerns over a de­clin­ing num­ber of busi­nesses oper­at­ing in the vil­lage.

Mr Stal­lard pointed out that the state of the vil­lage had been left to de­cline over a num­ber of years and raised his con­cerns that this was im­pact­ing on vis­i­tor num­bers, which was hav­ing an ad­verse ef­fect on busi­nesses.

The Aber­foyle Vil­lage Peo­ple is a vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tion that aims to find ways to make the vil­lage a bet­ter place to live and work in.

It has also raised con­cerns that gen­eral main­te­nance of the area has not been up to stan­dard in re­cent years.
