Dear member,

In recognition of our numerous successes over the past 7 years, the producers of the TV gardening Show “Beechgrove Garden” have invited Strathkinness Community Trust to host their Autumn Roadshow event on 29th September 2016. We are still awaiting final details but it looks as if they are to use the Church Hall as a meeting and greeting area for all ticketholders at around 6pm. Anyone with a gardening question for the expert panellists can lodge it with the producers at that time. Ticketholders would then cross to the Village Hall where the programme would be filmed for broadcasting at a later date.  We would envisage that numbers would be restricted to around 120 tickets. We shall update you when further information re tickets etc. is forthcoming.  This event will create a lot of interest in our community and we look forward to the challenge.

We continue to make progress with the Magus Muir project and the final legal matters are being dealt with. Tony Wilson is continuing to pursue funding initiatives.

Headon Developments has advised us that they should be in a position to hand over ownership of the Village Green area in late autumn. They will shortly be seeding the remainder of the site and tree planting will be done in the autumn.

Best regards from your Trustees.

Bob Bilson.
