Change in Plan for Crieff Fire Station

Perth and Kinross Joint Fire Committee have been told by the Scottish Home Department that their proposal to acquire agricultural land at Duchlage Farm, Crieff, as a site for a new fire station is “undesirable”.
The Home Department asked the Committee to review their proposals with regard to the erection of a station on the site occupied at present by the existing station. Subsequently the county architect reported that by demolishing the existing station it would be possible to erect a new station by acquiring about half of the ground they originally proposed to buy adjacent to the site.
Crieff Town Council have indicated that they are prepared to consider this modified proposal, and the Fire Committee have entered into negotiations with them.

New Fire Station

Mr. A.D.C. Main, of Windyedge, chairman of Perth and Kinross Joint Fire Committee, formally opened the new fire station in Crieff last night. He was accompanied by Lord Provost James A. Smart, of Perth, and Bailie S.A. Lauder, deputising for Provost D.O. Maclean, of Crieff.
Bailie Lauder handed over long service medals to Sub Officer A. Crerar and Leading Fireman John S. Campbell and David Shephard. With commentaries by Firemaster A. Masson, of Perth, the Crieff firemen carried out various drills and demonstrations for the large company which was present.
