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

to make sure they can take part.
The Electoral Registration Officer will be getting in touch

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

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.
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.

the clubs, please contact Gloria Wilson 01577 862553 or
