Another Alva Glen work day is being organised for this Sunday at 11am. Tasks to be done include:
We would like to thank the community of Alva for supporting us with our Christmas Lights fund. The collection tins were emptied on Tuesday 19/04/2016 and £99 was banked. Over all since March 2014 we have collected £1260 from the tins which goes a long way toward helping brighten up the town once the evenings are not as light as they are just now.
Clackmannanshire council are keen to promote their “Report It” service. Residents are encouraged to report to the council any issues that they believe the council can deal with such as street light faults, road and path faults, fly tipping, waste collection issues etc. Please visit the Report It website to report issues or call 01259 450000.
NHS Forth Valley have asked us to share information about the Community Cafes, Fruit and Vegetable Barras.
Here’s the leaflet.
In October 2016 across Clackmannanshire all existing Community Councillors will step down from their roles and a new Community Council will be elected in each area as announced on Clacksweb. Some of the existing Community Councillors will be standing for re-election while others may decide not to continue on.
This is an opportunity for all Clackmannanshire residents to get involved in local democracy and serve their local communities.
For more information on what it means to be a Community Councillor please see Introduction to Community Councils. If you wish to contact your local Community Council then please see the Community Councils contacts page on Clacksweb.
Alva currently have 9 Community Councillors out of a maximum of 14 so even if all existing members wish to stand again there is room for 5 new Community Councillors.
If you are a Clackmannanshire resident then please consider if joining your local Community Council would be an appropriate way to serve your local community. Nomination packs are available from Clackmannanshire Council and form must be returned by 15th September 2016.
