RAGE (Residents Against Greenbelt Erosion) are a concerned group of local people who want to protect and save the Park of Keir green belt site. The fight to save this land has been ongoing for 30 years and they want to preserve the Iron Age fort and woodland for future generations.
RAGE are holding their AGM on Wednesday 5th December at 7.15pm at the new Lecropt Church Halls, Dunblane Road, Bridge of Allan FK9 4NB. They will be discussing their future plans and everyone is welcome to come along.
Councillor Alasdair Tollemache has confirmed that two meetings have been arranged between Scotrail & commuters to discuss the new timetable changes. Both meetings are on Monday 3rd December with the Dunblane meeting being held at the Victoria halls in Dunblane at 7.00pm and the Bridge of Allan meeting at 8pm in the Allan Centre. Scotrail will be in attendance at both to explain the timetable and answer questions.
Whilst the Community Council is in a bit of flux at the moment due to the elections currently in progress, we have been asked to add the following item to the agenda for our January meeting.
It is proposed to discuss the formation of a new dementia-friendly and well-being cafe, open to everyone, especially elderly residents living with isolation or bereavement. The café will be called ‘CONNECTIONS’ and it will meet on a Monday afternoon from 2pm till 4pm at the Honeyman Hall in Bridge of Allan Parish Church.
The cafe will be seeking volunteers to help out on a Monday for a couple of hours. Volunteers may have to attend a small induction course on dementia which will be held locally. There will be no cost to the volunteer for the course. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and registering an interest in helping out.
The minutes from our October meeting are now online. You can access them here.
