This letter from Russell Goldsmith PKC………..
As you may be aware, this year, City Status was restored to Perth. The restoration of City Status gives us an opportunity to capitalise upon the economic, social and cultural benefits that are associated with it. This will not only benefit the residents and businesses of Perth but will extend the opportunity to those living in the surrounding areas through increasing tourism and encouraging business growth. The Council intends to develop a strategy for the future of the City of Perth which will help us to make the most of this opportunity.
In order to ensure this strategy meets the needs of all local areas both in Perth and the surrounding communities we would like to invite representatives of local community groups to take part in focus groups on the key themes of the strategy. The feedback provided at these focus groups will be used to inform the development of the strategy.
The focus group for your area will be held on: 25/10/2012 at 6pm – Strathearn Community Campus, Pittenzie Road, Crieff, PH7 3JN – ICT RooWe are looking for 10-15 people to attend each group from local community organisations. If you are interested in attending please contact me on the email address or telephone number below by Friday 19 October to confirm your attendance. Places will be limited so they will be on a first come first served basis.
If you have any questions please do not hesitated to contact me.
