This Valentine's day, Made in Perth, is looking for Saints fans' support.
There is a campaign underway to have Perth railway station renamed as 'Perth St Valentine', after the formal name, St Valentine's Day, given by Sir Walter Scott to the Waverley novel traditionally known as The Fair Maid of Perth.
Perth owes a debt of gratitude to Scott whose romantic tale of fourteenth century Scotland, put the 'Fair City' on the map.
The renaming of Perth railway station to Perth St Valentine (in the style of Edinburgh Waverley) would be a fitting tribute to one of Scotland's greatest novelists; it would add to the city's cultural heritage and provide an enduring legacy for the Perth economy, rail travel and tourism.
Made in Perth has written to Network Rail who own Perth railway station and asked them to consider the rename as a tribute to Sir Walter Scott who christened the ‘Fair City’ of Perth.
There is an online petition at http://chn.ge/1gq1U3C (Rename Perth railway station ‘Perth St Valentine’) and it would be fantastic if Saints fans could sign the petition and share with as many family and friends as possible.
Made in Perth is a charitable body, set up to promote arts, culture, ideas, and heritage in Perth (madeinperth.org).
