Alyth locals have gathered to celebrate the town’s successes and help shape its future.
Community groups, locals and businesses came together for the Community Futures Event on Saturday to enhance a Community Action Plan (CAP).
Supported by the Alyth Development Trust, Alyth Community Support Group and the CAP Steering Group, the five-year plan is aimed at making Alyth a better place to live, work and visit.
And organisers have worked to ensure local people are at the forefront of shaping the town’s future.
The interactive event brought out many of the town’s residents including families and young people.
A games area in the Market Square allowed children and their families to have fun while shaping their community’s future.
Organiser Jennifer Devaney, of the Alyth Development Trust, said: “The Community Futures Event was not only for information but a celebration of Alyth right now.
“Attending were Alyth’s celebrated community groups, new projects, current projects, businesses as well as the information on what the community have highlighted to work on in the five year road map.
“Alyth Museum and the Town Hall were opened for people to look and hear about the rich past of the town.
“We asked people to let us know what the most important themes are to them by way of a vote.”
Which areas are being considered?
Consultations with 25% of Alyth locals have identified various key areas the community hope can be looked info further.
Six themes are being looked at – built environment; parks, recreation and heritage; community and culture; nature and environment; local economy and tourism; and services and accessibility.
Views shared on Saturday will further support plans to improve and celebrate the town.
Jennifer added: “This paves the way for how we can do things in the area.”
