The Electoral Commission
Local residents are being warned not to lose their voice on decisions that affect them by making sure their electoral registration details are up to date.
With Scottish local government elections taking place in May 2022, this is an important opportunity for residents to make sure they can take part.
The Electoral Registration Officer will be getting in touch with every household to check that the electoral register is up to date, and to identify any residents who should be registered but are currently missing. With all nationalities now able to vote in Scottish Parliament and council elections, this will be an important opportunity to ensure these new voters can get onto the electoral register before next year’s Scottish Parliament election...... see rest of the Press Release

  Bridge Clubs Start Up in the Planning
With lockdown the value to our mental health and general well being of the weekly sessions of Milnathort Bridge Club and Kinross Bridge Club have been brought to light. While a number of the members have been playing ‘Bridge on Line’ this is not a full replacement for face to face bridge. The social aspect, the company of like minded people and the spirit of the friendly competition has been missed by all.

Both Clubs are currently working together, in conjunction with the Scottish Bridge Union, to set in place a sound and safe policy for the return to play. The SBU has issued an in-depth Risk Assessment document laying out how Clubs throughout Scotland could operate. Milnathort and Kinross Clubs, working with their venue managers, have adapted this to facilitate the safe return to Club meetings for their members and will continually update the plans as circumstances change.

It is envisaged that a phased return will take place when the respective Club Committees feel it is safe to do so. Every member will be kept informed and additional help needed to carry out all the extra work involved.


If you are a bridge player and would like to know more about the clubs, please contact Gloria Wilson 01577 862553 or Catriona Marshall 01577 864482.



CHAS are looking for retail and retail driver volunteers. See here for further details.
