Link Group Ltd would like to invite local residents to a drop in event to view proposals for the development at the former Alva Academy.
The development is due to start on site week commencing 27th October and the drop in event is an opportunity for you to view the proposals, to meet our Development & Housing staff and our Architect and to ask any questions. The contractor, Marshall Construction will also be in attendance to provide an insight into the construction programme.
This public event will take place as a drop in session at Cochrane Hall, Alva, FK12 5LJ on Thursday 16th October 2014 between 16.30 and 19.00.
There is limited parking around the building but there is a large car park to the rear of the hall that can be used. The Cochrane Hall is accessible via a ramp for anyone with mobility problems.
We would like to thank the people of Alva for the lovely feedback we have had this year regarding the planters installed on Stirling Street. In order to be able to keep them going year on year we are seeking volunteers to agree to tend to a planter each. If your shop, club, community group etc are interested in taking responsibility for a planter then please email firstname.lastname@example.org or pop into Higglety Pigglety for a chat.
Message from our friends at Alva Glen Heritage Trust
It’s time for another workday in the Glen.
We have a few more bulbs to plant, the sensory garden to tidy, roses to prune and leaves to be swept from paths. In addition we’ve noticed that some of the railings and posts in the Glen are in a poor state. It will be useful to do a quick survey in order to identify what needs doing so that, together with the Council, we can improve them over time.
Hope to see you this coming Sunday between 11am and 1pm.
The next meeting of Alva Community Council will be on Monday 13th October 2014 in Alva Baptist Church. Everyone is welcome to attend from 7:30.
