Alva Fun Day 2024

Our annual Fun Day is on Saturday 1st June from 12-4pm.
The theme this year is Superheroes which we have had before but it proved so popular, we have decided to run it again.
Mark this date in your diary and please spread the word as much as you can.
Thank you.

If you are interested in booking a stall, you can collect a booking form from the points mentioned in the poster or digitally from our booking form page here

We know it’s still October but in order to avoid clashing with other local events the Alva Christmas Fayre is just around the corner on Sat 18th November and the clock is ticking.

A new poster is currently being designed and will be published as soon as it becomes available.

Apologies for lack of posts and upload of our meeting minutes

I apologise for lack of posts and uploads of our meeting minutes over the past few months.
There are several issues on this website which I cannot fix due to my limited knowledge of WordPress, the platform it is built on.
Alva Community Council are seeking the help of a professional who has extensive knowledge of WordPress and Cpanel including the Mail Server.
Until we find such a person, nothing will be added to the site.
If you know anyone, please email me directly at

Thank you for your understanding.

Alva West Proposed Development – Update

Update on the Alva West Proposed Development.
Affordable Housing Statement added today.
In short it means 61 Affordable Homes will equate to 25% of the total number of units proposed made up of:
23 no. 2 bedroom 4 person villas;
29 no. 3 bedroom 5 person villas and;
9 no. 5 bedroom 8 person villas.
These will be split proportionately between the area north of the A91 and those to the south, to ensure integration and that construction of the Affordable Houses can be phased to match the development as a whole.

The full document can be viewed here
