At the Herald Society Awards on Wednesday November 20th 2013 Ochil Leisure Centre won the “Campaigners of the Year” award for saving Alva Pool. The volunteers also received a commendation in the “Unsung Heroes” award category. Some of us on the Community Council have had some involvement with OLE, or have family members who have been tirelessly involved from the start. We are delighted to offer them our congratulations and our heart felt thanks for providing Alva, and the wider hillfoot’s community with this out-standing resource, and wish OLE all the very best for the future, and much success in taking the centre forward.
More information on the awards can be found at the awards website, and should be reported in The Herald on Friday 22nd November 2013.
