Alyth Voice
Alyth Perthshire
Established in 1997
Originally established by the Crooked Dreel and Concealed Hinge Society
Alyth Voice now operates independently


The Alyth Voice was the brainchild of a local organisation called “The Crooked Dreel & Concealed Hinge Society” in 1997, primarily to record the views of the townspeople and be delivered free of charge to each household in Alyth and the immediate district. From its instant success, the Alyth Voice team became independent and have continued to develop the newsletter from its early 4 page spread to an average of 32 pages a month.

Locally known as ‘The Voice’, the pages are filled with business adverts [the major funding source], articles and public notices, as well as reports from the many voluntary organisations in Alyth.

The newsletter is managed by a team of 8 volunteers and delivered to every home in Alyth and district by nearly 50 volunteers, known as Voiceteers! The only source of funding is by public donation and advertisers. At present the circulation is 1725.

The Voice has become an important part of Alyth and residents look forward to delivery of their monthly issue. With over ten years of successful publishing, the Voice goes from strength to strength and plans are in place to develop it further.

FISHY BOOST FOR ALYTH            VOICE FINANCES      
Since 1997, the free monthly newsletter Alyth Voice has landed on the doormats of local houses and businesses, filled with news, views, adverts and information. Now in full colour and recently celebrating its 200th issue, it’s becoming a significant challenge to keep it in funds.
Local writer and former academic Rex Last has compiled a lifetime’s collection of quotations from books, newspapers, radio and TV, along with other humorous items in which people have written or spoken with their feet firmly placed in their mouths. Available to download now as a Kindle eBook from amazon.co.uk for just £3, royalties from 'She smokes like a fish' will be donated to support the finances of the Voice. Said Rex Last, ‘I was putting this book together as a change from the more serious stuff I write, and when I became aware that the Voice was facing financial difficulties, I was delighted to donate the royalties to this essential cornerstone of our vibrant local community.’
There are chapters on typos, newspaper headlines, epitaphs, the joys of spellchecking and much more, and the centrepiece of the book is a special chapter ‘A man of his word – Mr Malaprop’ which documents the splendid mis-speakings of a former colleague, one of whose offerings forms the title of the book.
For more information and selections from She smokes like a fish, go to locheesoft.com, where you will also find details of the author and his other eBooks. On the Amazon site you can sample a chunk of the text for free. Please go out in large numbers and buy a copy if you want a good laugh and at the same time boost the funds of our very special local Alyth Voice.
