Bridge of Allan Community Council are Recruiting. We are looking for new members to join the Community Council as co-opted members until full elections are held in 2023. We are also looking for minute takers.

Minute Taker Role

We are looking for someone to join us as a minute taker for our meetings. This role is paid at £40 per meeting. You would need to attend our meetings which are at the Allan Centre between 7.30pm and 9.30pm on the third Tuesday of the month (with breaks in July and December). The minutes would then need to be produced. Take a look at copies of past meeting minutes to get a flavour of the depth of discussion. We think it is very important to capture the full content of the discussion both to keep the community informed and for ourselves to refer back to.
