The Bridge of Allan Flood Forum having been carrying out a lot of good work over the last couple of years and they are looking for some new members to assist with their efforts. Please get in touch with Sem below if you'd like to assist in any way.

"Bridge of Allan Flood Forum was formed to look at alleviating flooding issues around Bridge of Allan.  Although some work has been carried out it is increasingly obvious that we need to recruit more members who can offer practical help and knowledge.  We already have a good rapport with the Scottish Flood Forum who are very supportive of what we are trying to do as well as having connections with Stirling Council and SEPA.  If you feel you can contribute to the Forum please get in touch with 
Sem Curley at acdc123@btinternet.com.  In the hope that we get a good result, a meeting will then be arranged at which the Scottish Flood Forum representative will attend to advise on the way forward."
