When I first moved to Kinross last year, I had the immediate impression that this was a place where I could be a Community Worker, perhaps a place where I could contribute to the local business economy. Kinross is a thriving town with regeneration of the old town centre currently being carried out. The old library and council offices are being renovated into luxury retirement flats and perhaps it’s only a matter of time before the old high school building (which is an eye sore) gets converted to serve the much needed housing crisis demand.
My first thoughts were to create an Animation Workshop, but this will require funding which will require a fair bit of my time which I don’t have just now. Since graduating from the University of Highlands & Islands this year, I have now started developing my media business. The new flyers and cards have arrived and I have been delighted to discover that Kinross has a very glossy looking newsletter which is more of a magazine and this is accompanied by a sister website run by the Kinross Business Partnership Association.where local business’s can advertise for free – yes free. I have yet to come across other towns that offer so much help to local small business’s.
I now have my wee ad online and I hope in the not too distant future I will be working with clients in Kinross as well as my clients in other parts of Fife, Falkirk and the Lothians. My hope is that I’ll be able to help local business grow through the use of increased Visual Communications platforms that they may not have even considered or been aware of.
