Looking back over the last year it has been a pleasure to engage with so many enthusiastic community groups who are interested in improving their green spaces and public spaces. A good example is the people in Auchterarder who have already developed a community run allotment site and now hope to raise money to improve their public park and sports pavilion.

Other examples are Alyth Development Trust who have worked tirelessly to try and raise funds to improve their town centre and create an events space. Two other community run allotments are in the pipeline in the Blairgowrie/Rattray and Alyth areas and both the Blackford and St Fillans communities are working hard to improve play facilities in their villages. There are many more communities working equally as hard throughout the Perth & Kinross area.
I am in awe of the enthusiasm and dedication of the volunteers I work with and would like to thank them for all their hard work.
