Police appeal for information
Local adults and young persons have been riding motorbikes on paths meant for pedestrians, prams, pedal cycles and pet owners. Routes include the path to Cambus and the Community Woodland as well as similar places across the Wee County.
This is an ongoing issue and the police ask members of the community for information which might help identify the riders.
Please phone 101 with any information you can provide about these bikes such as colour, size and where they are stored. Registration number (if any !) would be useful, too.
Message from the Chair, August 2015
Chair Stan Paterson, in the latest edition of Menstrie Matters, looks back on a successful summer for the Community Council: The Fete Week and Gala Day attracted healthy turnouts; and the Community Garden is a growing asset to the village. Looking forward to preparing for next year's activities, he invites attendees to forthcoming meetings of the Community Council and Gala Committee.
Will there be a Menstrie Gala in 2016 ?
Well - that depends on YOU. If we have new people coming forward to give us new ideas and help, we might be able to go on. We do not want the event to get stale - We really need fresh blood with new ideas.
There will be a meeting in the Dumyat Centre to discuss Gala plans on:
Thursday 20th October at 7.00 pm - Come along!.
Menstrie - Cambus path tidied
On Saturday 30th May, a happy band of litter pickers set out from Menstrie to clean up the all-use path between Menstrie and Cambus. The people from Menstrie (there could have been more) were ably assisted by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints of Alloa who had volunteered to help us to clean up the path. There were many, many bags of litter gathered. Refreshments were kindly supplied by Mrs. Sharon Fair, a Menstrie resident and Church member. Our path is now looking spick and span and we would hope it could stay like that, and make it a pleasant place for people to walk and cycle.
Shale gas extraction information exhibition
INEOS Upstream, a company proposing the exploitation of shale gas, invites Menstrie dwellers to a drop-in exhibition in the Dumyat Centre between 3 pm and 8 pm on 21st October at which they will present their position on the fracking operation, with the intention of the correction of misconception among the population. Visitors, who need no registration, will be able to discuss any apprehension with the delegation.
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.
