Statement from Bridge of Allan Community Council

posted 21 Apr 2015, 16:14 by Communications TEAM
  Earlier this month Graham's Dairies made Bridge of Allan Community Council aware of comments of a personal and abusive nature directed at the business and the Graham family, which had been posted by a small number of individuals on the SaveBofA Facebook page.  There are no formal links between the Community Council and the SaveBofA campaign, the Community Council has no role in the SaveBofA campaign or with regard to the operation of their Facebook page.  In the circumstances the Chair wrote to Robert Graham Jnr and advised the Community Council's position and at the same time stated that the Community Council condemned online personal abuse directed at anyone within our community.  The Community Council therefore notes with concern that an article in the Stirling Observer dated 15th April implies that the Community Council is associated with SaveBofA and the reported online abuse. 

The Community Council wishes to make it clear that it is not associated with the reported online abuse and it will continue to endeavour to represent all sections of the Bridge of Allan community.  We would encourage all sides to be respectful of the views of others with regard to the Airthrey proposals and focus on respectful and informed debate.
