Great Attendance in Royal Hotel Tuesday Evening

2nd May 2015

Heavyweight support for Ericht Trust announced !!

Professor Hume (AIA) presenting the Award to Ian Gordon, Chairman, Ericht Trust
Two significant bodies have found the Ericht Trust’s Hill Centre Project worthy of acclaim.
Professor Hume of the Association of Industrial Archaeology presented the Trust their National Initiative Award and £300 at an Open Meeting held at the Royal Hotel on Tuesday 28th April attended by over 60 supporters. The Award was in recognition of the Trusts efforts to save the listed printworks in Reform Street by relocating them in a working environment within the Hill Centre Project.
The second Award was from Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) supporting the Hill project with a grant of £40,000 from their Perth and Kinross Sustainable Development Fund. This is their flagship award and will help significantly in the progressing of the purchase and development of the disused Hill Primary School in the town.
Chairman Ian Gordon welcomed the news and emphasised that it would not only greatly assist the project, but encourage those working hard to fulfil the vision of a community resource in the old school.
The news of the awards was followed by updating presentations by Myra Shearer on other funding applications in hand, supported by Ron Inglis who detailed the funding strategy. Jessie Shaw then highlighted the urgent need for community involvement to enable funding success and Mike Stevenson informed all as to the current status of the site acquisition.
The audience then asked questions and gave advice which was noted for further consideration.
If anyone would like to support the Trust in helping with developing this community resource please contact them via the links on their website at www.theericht or phone the One Voice Office 13 Upper Mill Street, Blairgowrie on 871120 to leave details and someone will contact them.

Please note that this building will be lost to the Town unless action is taken!
