Badminton for Fun in Thornhill Hall

Playing badminton is a great way to keep fit and have fun so it’s good news that Callander and West Perthshire U3A have started a group in the community hall.

It’s held on Wednesday afternoons, at 2-4pm and there is space for new members. As the name ‘Badminton for Fun’ suggests this group is non-competative and you don’t need to be an expert or even particulary fit to join in.

If you would like to give it a go with no obligation contact or

Library Survey

Please see below the links to two surveys which you may wish to complete or pass on to others who may be interested.

Mobile Library Survey

Stirling Council is currently surveying mobile library readers about changes to proposed mobile timetables.  The survey will be live until 30th October.

Anyone can access the survey online directly by following this link:  
Or you can download and print the mobile library survey and proposed new route here. You can hand completed paper surveys in to the mobile van.

The survey offers a chance to comment on what other services people might like to see eg access to Health/Housing/Benefits advice.  The plan is to offer digital support and other kinds of help eg to rural areas. 

Public Library survey

This is a national survey and runs from Monday 2nd to Saturday 21st October.

The survey is for anyone aged 16 and over.  No demographic or identifiable information is collected and the survey should take only 2 minutes to complete.  Once analysed, results will be available at a local and national level.  

The survey has been developed by SLIC and the Association of Public Library Services in Scotland (APLS).  SLIC will host the online version (link below) and will analyse all data received.   You are encouraged to complete online but also provided is a print version, completed paper forms can be handed in to libraries.

Speeding in Thornhill Main Street

Please see the letter below from Alyn Smith MP sent to Thornhill and Blairdrummond Community Council regarding a survey in to traffic in the Main Street.

“Thank you very much for all this information.  It is something that was brought to Alyn’s attention and we have been into it to see what discussions have been going on and the councils activity on the matter.  Attached to this email is a letter launching a survey on Road Safety in Thornhill.  Alyn is very keen to get residents views on the matter to present to Stirling Council to try and see if we can get the ball rolling on some sort of improvement being made.  Alyn has had some recent success in East Plean that was having very similar issues.  Alyn was able to help secure improved road calming measures for the area so is hoping we can do something similar for Thornhill.

As I said a letter is attached with information on how to access the survey.  Alternatively, here is a link that will take you directly to the survey:

Again, thank you very much for providing the information have, it is very useful.  If there is any way you could help share the survey out wide that would be very helpful, we are hoping to get as many residents of Thornhill as possible to respond.  I will circulate the results to you once we have achieved a high number of responses.”
