Alva Glen Heritage Trust Needs Your Help

It’s come to our attention that Alva Glen Heritage Trust needs more
volunteers to help with their monthly clean-up program.
It takes place on a Sunday once a month.

We all love our Alva Glen and are so grateful to the vast improvement
of the Glen and the illuminations when they have the funding to hold
the event.

If you can be of any help, I’m sure the whole of the Alva Community
will be eternally grateful to you and the work this organisation does for us.

To contact them, send a message on their Facebook page which is

Thank you

#GrowClacks in Tillicoultry and Alva

Join us for an event focusing on community growing hosted by Greenspace Scotland and Clackmannanshire Council

Wednesday 31 May, 3-5pm
Ben Cleuch Centre

Park St, Tillicoultry

Sign up to the event here or join us on the day.

If you are growing already – you could be a member of a community garden, a garden volunteer with the local school or an allotment plot holder – then this event is for you.

If you are not growing anything (apart from maybe weeds in your own garden!) but you would like to give it a try – then this event is also for you!

The programme will be a mixture of presentation, discussion and a walk outside – so please come dressed for the weather. Children are welcome, but must be supervised by an adult.

The aim of this event (and others across the area) is to develop a Local Allotments and Food Growing Strategy for Clackmannanshire and we need local people to tell us why, where and how they would like to be growing their own food.

If you can’t come to the event then you can fill out a survey to let us know about how you are growing your own or if you are not – why not. The survey will be available shortly.

You can find us on Facebook @GrowClacks here:
