PRIDE IN PERTHSHIRE - Key Persons
Alyth is a small town in Perth and Kinross that lies near the Hill of Alyth, five miles northeast of Blairgowrie. The nearby settlement of New Alyth lies on the A926 road southwest of the main village.
Alyth in Bloom was formed in 2000 to improve the appearance and environment of the town. The group has created flower beds at the entrances to Alyth and provided containers of flowers on the main street and in the town centre. Hanging baskets are also installed at the Airlie Street Hall and the town hall. Contact us via the telephone number or email address at the top of this page if you'd like to know more.
Bill was elected Chairman of the Association in April 2017. He was a founder member of the Association in 1998 and is a volunteer with his local bloom group, Coupar Angus Pride of Place. He is a RHS Britain in Bloom judge and also has experience of judging for the Beautiful Scotland and Beautiful Fife competitions.
Crosswell Fountain is a category C listed structure situated in the centre of Kinross. The fountain was built in 1885 directly over the Cross Well, which had been the source of the public water supply. In 2018 Kinross in Bloom commissioned a report on the fountain's condition, which showed that it is still structurally in good condition but does require some conservation work. As a result, a project is being set up with the Take a Pride in Perth & Kinross Association to raise funds so the restoration can go ahead. Fundraising is underway, including through a Just Giving page where individual contributions can be made. All donations will be very welcome!
Glenlomond is a village lying to the north-east of Loch Leven, north of the A911 road at the foot of Bishop Hill in the Lomond Hills. It is approximately 6.5 km east of Kinross.
