In preparation for the wind farm community benefit funding being generated through the Todhill Wind Farm, the Community Council has been working with Community Enterprise supported by funding we have received through Local Energy Scotland to help us to identify local priorities to generate a local community action plan. We have had a tremendous response to the online survey and attendance at our public and stakeholder meetings.
Community Enterprise are going to present the results of the consultation at an open public meeting which will be held on Thursday 28th May 2015 at 6:30pm in the halls of Larbert Old Church.
All are welcome to attend.
We are absolutely delighted to announce that Jamie Burgoyne’s photo “New Dawn, New Hope” is the winner of our photography competition. We had so many fantastic photographs submitted and the quality of entries was very high. The 3 judges who are all local residents with art-related backgrounds advised that the judging was no mean task and that it took a lot of deliberation and discussion between them to come up with a winner.
The judges advised that there were several reasons for their choice of winner which included the fact it shows the old (Larbert Old Parish Church), the new (the pier and boat house at Larbert Loch), the upgraded amenity of the area (Larbert Loch and woods) and because it is in the hospital grounds it also suggested the tranquillity of the area within the community. It was also pointed out that rays emanating from the rising sun could also be suggestive of the turbine blades at the wind farm. Overall the judges felt this picture best fitted the brief and was a well constructed and taken photograph too.
Jamie will be awarded his prize vouchers at the public meeting on Thursday 28th May 2015.
