Regulating traffic in Menstrie
Clacks Council has proposed the following traffic regulation orders:

one-way traffic operation in reducing traffic congestion within the area.

passengers. It would not prohibit motor vehicles for up to sixteen passengers,
specially adapted for the transport of people with disabilities.

Primary School news
Galaxy Tabs offer
Menstrie Primary School is working to take up an offer by Tesco Stores and Stork Margarine in which 50 tokens can be exchanged for one Samsung Galaxy Tab. The school has bought 50 tubs, and Mr Pennie is arranging a "Bake-off" where, throughout the period of the offer, parents can get a tub from the school and in return bake some goodies which will then be sold to cover the cost of the margarine. One of these events has now taken place and the profits were shared with "Red Nose Day".
If you have any "Tablet Tokens" at home, please hand them in to the school where they will be much appreciated.
Postage stamps to help the RDA
The school collects postage stamps for charity. Any used stamps can be torn off old envelopes and handed in to the School Office. The stamps are used to support a local Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) group. Presently they are raising funds to develop a sensory field for young people with learning difficulties and recently obtained a pony which allows youngsters to take part in hippotherapy. Some of our youngsters have benefitted from the work of the RDA and the school would like very much to help to support them.

Hospital bus services H1, H2
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.
