(Definitely not an April Fool, all hands needed!)
Following on from everyone’s efforts last month, we still have to ‘top dress’ the second half of the path we made, using the finer material. This will involve barrowing loads from the bottom end of the path where it will be deposited, then raking etc. It would be really good to get this job done in one go, so the more the merrier……

Meet at the top end of the path (junction with South Common) at 10am armed with barrows, shovels, rakes etc. There will be cake.
At the moment the weather doesn’t look too bad but if that changes we’ll rearrange.

Clubs and Groups Got Together

Sticky Post

Thornhill Community Hall was busy with stallholders and visitors on Saturday. There was lots of conversation, laughs and greeting of friends old and new.

Some of the stallholders decorated their stalls (and in some cases themselves) so the place looked bright and welcoming.

Many thanks to those who took part, donated home baking and sandwiches, and to the kitchen helpers who supplied endless cups of teas and coffees.

Thanks also to the Stirling Council ‘Let’s Get Together’ fund for grant in support of the event.

There is a selection of photos below. If anyone who was there and took their own photos would like them included you can email them to

Pop-up Charity Shops

·         The Alpha Centre, Fallin on Wednesday 15 March from 11.00 am – 3.00 pm.

CYP Silly Sundays weekend activity programme

Callander Youth Project are running a 4-weekend activity block taking place each Sunday in March (see poster for information). The programme is open to any young person from P6 to S3. Please note that young people must live or attend school in the McLaren High catchment area in order to participate.

Thanks to funding from The Conundrum Trust, every session on this programme will be free to sign up for. Spaces are limited to 16 places for each session therefore we will open the sign-up window until the evening of Tuesday 21st February (after the first youth club back from the February holiday) before randomly allocating spaces based on drawing names – we hope this gives everyone a fair chance of involvement.

Young people should only sign up for sessions they are interested in – there’s no requirement to sign up for the entire block. A waiting list will be created in the event that demand exceeds availability.

More information about the activities and sign ups can be made here –
