FUTURE OF THE KILLEARN HOTEL PUBLIC MEETING
THURSDAY 9th MARCH 7.30pm
If you are interested at all in the future of the Killearn Hotel building, please come along to a public meeting tomorrow evening at 7.30pm in the Village Hall Garden Room. The meeting has been arranged at short notice following almost one hundred members of the community joining a Facebook Group “Save the Black Bull” which was created less than a week ago.
A full planning application to develop residential apartments on the site has been lodged with Stirling Council by a developer. Tomorrow’s meeting may be the last chance for members of the community to have a say in the future of the building. Whatever your views, they are most welcome.
Please can everyone from Killearn and worldwide please join “Save The Black Bull” group on facebook!!
Killearn annual fireworks event:
Please note that it is on Friday 4th November this year.
Gates open at 7.00pm
Display starts at 7.30pm
Also there will be no procession this year from the CO-OP to the Village Hall!
As the organisers are expecting higher than normal numbers of spectators to come along to thus evening’s Killearn Fireworks Extravaganza we’re putting out a call for an extra 8 volunteers to shake a bucket to collect entrance donations on the gates. If you’re able to help this evening, please come along to a meeting in the Church hall at 6.00pm (4th November 2016) to collect your buckets and a steward’s hi-viz vests. Thanks.
If you can help, please message us via www.facebook.com/Killearncommunityfutures/
Great news some parts of Killearn now have fibre broadband. Find out if you can get it, by checking your phone number @ dslchecker.bt.com.
Right now, we believe it’s mainly only the Station Road area of the village, that is getting it right now. But it’s a start!
Norman McNab said: “I am delighted that the Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded us a grant which should give a fascinating insight into the Glen’s past. Our success was enabled by the very positive support of Stirling Council, who own the Glen, and the professional help of Green Aspirations Scotland.”

Just to remind everyone that “Loch Lomond: A Year in the Wild” is on Channel 5 tonight at 8:00pm.
It’s a documentary series about the wildlife of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park in Scotland, filmed across one year. The winter is mild and wet, which is good news for some but bad news for others. Red deer are forced to higher ground, salmon have gone six months without food, mountain hares turn a conspicuous white, and squirrels kick their own young out of the nest.
