Cambuskenneth is an
historic, child-friendly, sustainable, riverside community. It includes the
Abbey of Cambuskenneth (founded 1147), and lies on the pedestrian trail to
the Wallace Monument, and the cycle route around the lower reaches of the
Forth. The Community Council strives to maintain Cambuskenneth as an
attractive residential setting (a) by extending
participation in community life; (b) by seeking to establish a 20’s
plenty traffic zone in the village; (c) by seeking to erect an information notice board for tourists,
visitors and residents at the village end of the footbridge; (d) by lobbying for improved flood
protection; and (d) by working towards the completion of the cycle trail
over/under/around the A91 and the railway line, thus placing Cambuskenneth on
a quiet, safe and health-enhancing route between Stirling and Alloa.

The Trees have been planted in the Park. George Thynne
asked Rosemary Reid of Ferry Orchard House if they had the ‘Cambuskenneth
Red’ apple in their garden, but sadly they didn’t.
Councillor’s Report: (Jim Thompson)
The next Budget meeting will be held on Thursday to
discuss the £6.3 million to be cut from the budget. There is a possibility of
a 7-day bin collection, which will introduce an extra bin. This will in
theory reduce number of vehicles being operated, and workers. Ross McGregor
raises the worry that more infrequent bin collection could lead to an
increase in fly tipping. There is information on this matter on the Stirling
A police van with a camera was seen at the rail crossing
recently, and previously this had been sent due to people jumping the
barrier, but Jim Thompson did not have any further information.
Regarding the Kerr’s Yard site, Sepa are still insisting
that nothing is to be moved from the site due to the contamination
Treasurer’s Report: There is
currently £2885 in the bank, £1400 of which is reserved for the Hall and
Park, and £500 for the Village Sign. This leaves £985 of available funds.
7. Secretary’s Report: It was agreed to submit an objection to the
Airthrey Kerse Development on behalf of the Community Council. Kirsteen Smith
will be organising an Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday for the children. The
CC agreed to accept the cost for this of about £25.
the Verge: Tessa Carroll suggests Sunday 3rd April at
10:30 in the morning for the planting of the wild flowers. Neil Smith will
supply a Silver Birch tree, which is to be planted in the Park. An Agreement
has been received from Cowan’s Trust assuming that we will maintain the tree.
Sign: Andy Kippen came up with a possible design for the new
sign. It will cost around £400 to £500 for the sign and its installation. Jim Thomson has emailed the Roads Department
on our behalf to establish where the sign could be sited. When we meet with
the Roads Department we will also ask about the drainage on Ladysneuk Road.
Police Report: There was no recorded crime between 25th
of January and 21st of February. There was a phone call reporting
sounds of gunshots on the River Forth. George Thynne will find out how that
Wallace Forum – attended by Graham Barrett
There were some complaints about the lack of time in the
agenda for community issues and Stirling Council were to address this issue.
Health and Social partnerships were discussed, which would try to prevent,
and provide more available services. There will be a single telephone number
as a point of contact. There were also thoughts of creating a ‘Digital Hub’
in the city centre. This is a 10-year programme, which would include a
possible civic square, a city park and a conference centre, to attract tourists.
next meeting: 21st March 2016
