Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS - Dear Edi­tor Dear Edi­tor,

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.

Bob El­lis Chair Blair­gowrie and East Perthshire Tourist As­so­ci­a­tion
