A Snowy Retrospective

Snow always looks best when it first falls, and happily that’s when most of us get our cameras out. Here’s a little montage of some of the ones that were taken in the last week.  Angela reported 20 inches up at Kinnighallen Farm (first picture).

And finally – how to make an Angel ………

Many thanks to Angela Kininmonth, Stuart Brain, Linda Milne, Hazel Brockie, Liz Paterson, Peter McKenzie and Ivan Watson (and a special mention for Pamela and her angel!)

Vaccine Scam Warning

There are reports that a fake NHS text message is circulating, telling people that they are eligible to apply for the COVID-19 vaccine.

When you click on the link, you are taken to a convincing fake NHS website that asks for personal details including bank account information. Any text message containing a link should be treated with caution. The best way to find information from GOV.UK, or any other agency, is to visit that particular website via a trusted source (such as through Google or Bing) and do not click on links in unsolicited texts or emails.

There have also been reports of criminals making telephone calls and asking for payment over the phone before you can attend your vaccine appointment. The vaccine is free. If you receive such a call, please hang up immediately.

These scams appear very convincing so please be alert and make sure that anyone you know who might be vulnerable to such scam is aware of the problem. If you think you have been a victim of fraud, please let your bank know immediately and contact Police Scotland on 101 or contact Advice Direct Scotland on 0808 164 6000

Heartland Radio

Heartland Radio provide an important community radio service for Highland Perthshire with the latest local news and entertainment – which is even more important at the moment during the pandemic.

At the same time, COVID-19 has caused a huge drop in their advertising revenue and they do not receive License or subscription fees, or any regular public funding, nor do they expect their income from advertising to increase significantly in the short term. The result is that they may have to come off air.

They are currently seeking crowd funding for their running costs, including transmission fees, broadcast licenses and fees. Regular listeners might be interested in helping secure the future of our Community Radio and Keep the Voice of Highland Perthshire broadcasting. Even small amounts would be very warmly welcomed!
