Francis Mackay is investigating the siting of a defibrillator in the community. We plan to have a discussion and a demonstration of this at our May meet- ing. If you have any thoughts on this, and especially on where it should be located, let us know.
Community Plant Group
This group which has been responsible for the hanging baskets and the other plants in the village is looking for a new name. The idea is that it should describe all the activities that the group hopes to organise to make the village
a nicer place to live in. We hope that all the local organisations will play their part. Any ideas?
Archaeology at Chapel Well
In the next few months you might no- tice some “ground penetrating radar” investigations at the site of the old Chapel Well. We hope that it will uncover some good evidence for the Chapel.
There have been some significant de-velopments recently with this. It appears that one of the landowners- Drygrange Estate- has signed a lease with a new quarry company to start extracting rock again from the site. Looks as if they are determined to go ahead as soon as they can. Come along to the next Community Council meeting on the 16th or the Save Gillies Hill meeting on the 18th to get all the details.
There have been complaints about ve- hicles parking in the turning bays in Bruce Terrace and making it awkward for other road users. We have taken this up with Stirling Council but their initial response is that there is little they can do and it may be a Police matter if the vehicles are causing an “obstruction.” Let us know your thoughts.
Bus Stop at Underwood Road
After a resident brought vandalism at the bus stop in Underwood Road to the Community Council’s attention, we contacted Stirling Council and they have turned it round so that any anti- social activities are more in view and people can report them immediately to the Police.
After the consultation meeting of 11th March we have asked Stirling Council to investigate traffic management so lutions to ease the problems which some residents experience in travelling through Douglas Terrace.
