Message from Councillor Les Sharp, May 2015

Les reports that Clacks Council has started working to Making Clackmannanshire Better (MCB), something we will see and hear more of in the months to come.

As well as urging us to take active part in the Community Council's forthcoming Fete Week and Gala (or even better, helping out on the day) he notes the imminent extension of the footpaths in Menstrie Wood as far as Blairlogie, completing the Hillfoots Way.

Temporary road closure: Long Row, Menstrie

This would affect Long Row, Menstrie from its junction with Laurelbank westwards for a distance of 50 metres or thereby (ref: TC387DC 5-6-1123)

The period of closure to vehicular traffic is from 0800 hours on Monday 1st June 2015 until 1630 hours on Tuesday 2nd June 2015.

The temporary closure is required for installation of sewer connection.
A diversion route goes via Long Row, School Lane and vice versa.

Hospital bus services H1, H2

GO sign, image Crown copyright |d| Bus sign, image Crown copyright The H1 and H2 bus services are safe and will continue to run until March 2018. From 3rd January 2015 it will be serviced by the company to win the current tendering process. The same timetable, route and type of bus will be used. It is hoped that by March 2018 a new service will have been created in conjunction with NHS Forth Valley, Clackmannanshire Council, the private and voluntary sectors. The group's local and rural service will link with the service provided by NHS Scotland from Shillinghill in Alloa.
