The public notice and call for ideas of how to spend it ironically came at the same meeting as the further call for Lidl's to agree to sell the Coeval premises, the former Fowler's Brewery HQ, to the Arts Festival in town; and for it to be listed by Historic Scotland.
Here's hoping they agree. The Arts Festival is brimming with Hope and Ambition ..!
