  • The Police report for September is available, which includes advice about avoiding fraud and about bike security.

  • The Planning schedule for June-September is available.

  • Update 105 is available.

  • We have a message from Laura Taylor (TaylorL@ActiveStirling.org.uk) at Active Stirling about the return of falls prevention classes in Killearn for older adults. Please pass this information on to anyone you know who might benefit from it.

    The main change is the day and time of class and also that classes must be prebooked (previously they just turned up on the day).

    We will be restarting a very reduced Active Adults Timetable as of w/c 23rd August 2021. As you can imagine there have been a lot of challenges and changes in guidelines when it comes to physical activity. With this in mind, we have had to reduce the number of class participants and also venues where we use to run classes from. We hope that in the near future this will change, and we can offer more variety of classes. Covid protocols will be followed in line with the Scottish Government.

    The classes we have returning back next week are:

    Monday

    Class – Strength & Balance class (chair-based falls prevention class based around OTAGO moves)
    Venue – Killearn Kirk Hall, Killearn
    Time – 1pm-1.30pm & 2pm-2.30pm.

    If someone previously had a community class pass, then the credits that they had left will be honoured but once that has been used, they will need to pay per class. Classes are also included in the Peak ALL IN membership. Class passes expiry dates have been extended to 31/12/2022. New prices are £4 per class or £3 concession.

    We have also changed the way classes are booked to online booking via www.activestirling.org.uk or by downloading the Active Stirling App. You will no longer be allowed to just turn up to the class on the day. All classes must be prebooked. To book you will need a PIN number which you can also request via the link or app. Your email linked to your account is the one that I have emailed you on. If you previously attended an Active Stirling class you will have an account, if you don't know you PIN they you can request a new one. Any issues please email askus@activestirling.org.uk.

    If you have any questions then please feel free to contact me.

    Kind regards,
    Laura

  • Review of Proposed Path between Former Hospital Site and Killearn

    The proposal for the path connecting the development at the former hospital site and Killearn is part of application 20/00098/FUL (viewable at Stirling Council's planning portal). KCC considers that there are problems with the proposed route and is looking into an alternative.
