Date for your diaries  –  Skatepark consultation event, 17 November, Alyth Town Hall

The volunteers bringing the Skate Park to Alyth would like to invite you to an opening evening consultation on Friday 17 November in the Alyth Town Hall.

With thanks to your feedback earlier this year, the volunteers have worked with PKC to bring you six possible locations to vote on.

The session in the Town Hall will run from 7-9pm and you may enter at any time to review the location options and make your vote.  

During the evening you will be able to see up close the drawings for each site, read feedback from some of the children of Alyth, the target audience of the skate park, and children attending can enjoy the “design-a-skateboard” craft area.

In the first week of November we will share the six locations on the Alyth.Online site so if you are unable to attend and vote at the open evening consultation on 17 November you can register your vote by emailing

ADT helps Community Council celebrate local heroes

We’re proud to be supporting Alyth Community Council (ACC) as they prepare to celebrate the people and organisations in the town who have gone above and beyond to make Alyth the wonderful place it is.

A £1,175 grant from our Community Projects Fund is helping to fund prizes, catering, advertising and venue costs for ACC’s Volunteer Appreciation Event this coming Saturday (21 October) in Alyth Town Hall starting at 7pm.

As well as the ACC presenting the Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year and Community Group of the Year awards, it is planned that other groups will also present and/or celebrate their internal awards there.  There will be refreshments provided after the awards ceremony. 

We salute ACC for arranging this prestigious ceremony and social event, and we’re proud to be able to support it.

ADT’s Community Projects Fund distributes the community benefit funds provided for Alyth by the operators of the Tullymurdoch Windfarm, some five miles north of the town.  Applications to the fund are judged by an independent panel of volunteers drawn from across the community.  Apply at

Calling all aspiring young artists!

An exciting opportunity has been created (by ADT and the legacy funding from the dissolution of the Arts and Crafts Guild) to instigate a competition to promote the work of young artists in Alyth. 

The competition will have two age categories: under 10 and between 11 and 18, on the 1st September 2023. 

Art work submitted should be connected to Alyth, however loosely, and on the theme of “Reflections”.

The work can be in any medium: painting, charcoal, crayon, collage, mixed media, three dimensional or any other form. 

There will be prizes for each age group in the form of vouchers to be spent in local businesses and we should like to hold an exhibition of finished work to celebrate the creativity of participants.  The competition will run until the end of September and submission of work will initially be by a photograph of the work, which should be sent by email to the address below.

As the school holidays are upon us we hope that these may provide an opportunity to research, reflect and develop a piece of work in line with the guidelines. 


  • Art work can be in any medium
  • Work should be related to the theme of “Reflections”
  • There should be some connection with Alyth
  • There are two age groups
  • The competition will close at the end of September
  • There will be a judging panel, initially looking at photographs of the finished work
  • An exhibition of the art work will take place after judging
  • Vouchers will be awarded to the top performers in each category
  • Photos of work should be submitted to:
  • Submissions by 30th September 2023

We very much hope that this will inspire all young artists to develop their artistic ideas and showcase their talents and we look forward to receiving a lot of submissions.

Dr Bike at the Market, thanks to ADT Community Project Fund

Local people and visitors to Alyth Market on 22 July will be able to get their cycles expertly repaired thanks to a grant from Alyth Development Trust’s Community Projects Fund.

The independent panel that judges applications to the Fund has awarded £400 to Alyth Cycles to cover the costs of spare parts and staff provided as part of the “Dr Bike” service.

Alyth Cycles has attended previous markets and other events as Dr Bike, proving very popular and helping to encourage more people to get out and about on their cycles safely.

Dr Bike will be on hand at the Market in and around Alyth’s central Square throughout the Market Day, and if previous outings are anything to go by there’s likely to be a queue of eager cyclists looking to get some TLC for their machines, so get there early!

ADT and the Community Projects Fund panel are delighted to support this initiative once again, as it aligns with Alyth’s commitment to promoting sustainable transport and exercise.

Callum Brooks, who runs Alyth Cycles at The Barony Old Church on Commercial Street, said:  “We’re looking forward to meeting anyone with a bike needing some attention, whether you’re a casual rider or a keen enthusiast.  We’re grateful to the Community Projects Fund for making this possible.”

ADT’s Community Projects Fund distributes the community benefit funds provided for Alyth by the operators of the Tullymurdoch Windfarm, some five miles north of the town.  Applications to the fund are judged by an independent panel of volunteers drawn from across the community.  The next deadline for applications to the fund is 15 July.  Apply at
