CANCER sufferers from Killearn and Balfron are going to benefit from a new free transport service to hospital appointments for radiotherapy treatment.

The ‘Rotarun’ scheme was introduced by the Rotary Club of Strathendrick after they discovered that many patients who need radiotherapy treatments at the Beatson Hospital or elsewhere have experienced difficulty with transport.

Stirling Council have made the decision that there is to be no school transport operating Thursday 16 December 2010. This is due to the assessment of further poor weather conditions that may affect the Council area and is required that no school transport should be operated even if schools are open. We have also been advised that drivers will be informing schoolchildren waiting at bus stops for service buses, not to travel to school on a service bus as there may be no service to return homewards.

We have been advised that the weather forecast is for heavy persistent rain over night. Tomorrow the temperature will be freezing resulting in widespread icy stretches forming after 0600 and a brief spell of snow. The rest of the day is predicted to be dry and bright.

The Council is hopeful that they can provide transport as from Friday 17 December 2010.

Balfron High School will be open but from 10am only but only for those pupils who can safely get to school and back home again without school transport.

Please check the Stirling Council website for updates for transport on Friday and from Monday 20 December 2010.
