People Power needed to charge forward with new plans

A leading Moray regeneration group is calling on new thoughts and ideas to add to the melting pot as it prepares to map out its priorities for the year ahead.

At its annual meeting on October 29, Keith and Strathisla Regeneration Partnership (KSRP) will be reviewing its past year’s work with some pride, having had a number of successful projects under its belt.

Probably the most significant was last November’s launch of the ‘In Keith’ promotional campaign seeking to bring business, visitors and investment to Keith-Strathisla through marketing activities and the website.

KSRP has also been closely connected with the successful bid that has seen Keith become Scotland’s first Scots Toun, as well as the Incredible Edible community planting event held at the Bandstand Gardens, which saw flower beds filled with fruit, vegetable and herb plants for the public to freely pick throughout the growing season.

KSRP won’t just be looking back on its recent glories, as it will also have its gaze firmly set on the future and ways in which the partnership can continue to build on what’s already being achieved.

Chair Valery Dickson said: “We feel we’ve achieved so much since the launch of our In Keith work and we want to keep the momentum flowing.

“It’s always good to have fresh ideas as that gives everyone a renewed vigour and impetus with which to press forward with.

“That’s why we are encouraging people to come along and find out more about KSRP, and hopefully get involved too.

“KSRP is for anyone who lives and works in Keith-Strathisla. The thoughts and views of all our residents and business people are important so come along and tell us how you think Keith can become a better place to work, rest or play.”

The annual general meeting takes place at the Ugie House Hotel at 7pm on Wednesday, 29th October. All are welcome.
