Perth in bid for city status

Bookmakers (William Hill) have placed Perth in the top two in the race for winning city status. Perth is one of 26 entrants in the Diamond Jubilee City Status Competition to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s ascension to the throne.

A determined effort has been led by Provost John Hulbert of Perth and Kinross Council to officially regain the grandeur lost in government reorganisation over quarter of a century ago. With the announcement expected next month, the efforts appear to be paying off, with bookmaker William Hill placing Perth as second favourite.
