Memorial Park Trees Update

posted 3 Aug 2017, 03:19 by Communications TEAM   [ updated 8 Aug 2017, 13:33 ]

The Council have provided us with an update to the existing trees in Memorial Park. Stirling Council have now marked 24 conifers and 2 maples for removal. This is being put out to contractors, hopefully the works will be completed by the end of September. I am sure many people will be aghast at the number of trees which are due to come down so it is important to say that the trees will be replaced with other non-native species by the Park Steering Group, which includes Stirling Council, the CC and Friends of Bridge of Allan.


We will post updates on the proposed start date when we know more.

There will have to be path closures whilst the works are ongoing. Also as the issue is potentially Phytophthora (although tests don’t confirm this), Stirling Council will be looking to place disinfectant mats down at the entrances to the parks. All cut material will have to remain in the park. As much as possible will be chipped in to the beds.

Following the 2017 Annual General Meeting of the Bridge of Allan Community Council, we are delighted to confirm our Office Bearers in post.

Our new Chairman is Mike Watson, who has been a member of our Community Council since 2006. Mike replaces Douglas Dodds who was in the Chair since 2015 until he was elected as a Conservative and Unionist Councillor, representing Dunblane and Bridge of Allan, in the recent local Council elections.

On taking up his post Mike thanked members for their support and encouragement to take on the post. He also thanked the outgoing Chair Douglas Dodds for his drive and leadership in taking the C.C through some challenging times. Mike also gave a special thanks to Sandra Davidson for ably taking on the mantle of Interim Chair

Re-elected to post are Marie Gardner as Treasurer and Leslie Harkness as Secretary.

The Community Council is now in Summer recess and our next meeting will be help on Tuesday 15th August. We wish you all a great Summer holiday and we look forward to another active year working with and for the community.


Rural Watch Scotland

posted 2 Jul 2017, 08:22 by Communications TEAM

'Rural Watch Scotland' is an extension of the Neighbourhood Watch Scotland movement and endorsed by  the Scottish Partnership Against Rural Crime (SPARC) and Forth valley Rural Crime Group aimed specifically at the rural communities of Scotland and aims to bring all the benefits of Neighbourhood Watch to all rural communities irrespective of location, size or demographics.


Rural watch is an online community for any member of the public where appeals, crime prevention tips and safety alerts can be posted by those who subscribe which can be viewed by all members. Subscription is free and the sharing of information on the forum is a great example of real time crime prevention in action.

The objectives of Rural Watch Scotland are to:

•Reduce crime and the fear of crime by providing the right information, to the right people, at the right time.

•Encourage people to think about safety and security for themselves, their neighbours and their community.

•Improve community cohesion and well-being by supporting communities to develop 'their watch, their way'.

•Work in partnership with national and local service providers to develop more resilient communities that are better prepared against threats, intentional or unintentional, such as crime or extreme weather.

The experience of Neighbourhood Watch throughout Scotland and elsewhere across the world is that members of Rural Watch Scotland will be less likely than non-members in the rural community to be a victim of crime.

By joining the Rural Watch Scotland scheme members can receive alerts and advice by phone, text or email. By keeping members informed about crime and other threats in specific areas, Rural Watch Scotland can help prevent crime, keep communities and residents safe, and members responses to these alerts can help catch criminals or be better prepared to deal with other threats to communities. To join Rural Watch Scotland simply:
