Your Community Council is keen to hear your views on a recent application
to amend Stenhousemuir Bowling Club’s licence.
The current licence allows the Club to open from 10am to midnight (MondayThursday
and Sunday) and 10am to 1am (Friday and Saturday). In addition it
has an off-sales licence Monday to Sunday 10am to 10pm. During its
opening hours the Club can sell alcohol, bar meals, run functions, hold club
meetings, provide facilities for dancing, organise indoor and outdoor sports
and show televised sports.
The Club has now asked for an alteration to this licence to hold additional
activities within the Club and in the area outside of the building. These
additional activities are:
• restaurant facilities,
• conference facilities,
• outdoor drinking in the seated areas to the north and south of the Bowling
• charity nights and children’s parties.
• recorded music, live performance and televised sport before opening
hours (no alcohol will be sold at these).
The Club also wants to increase access for children and young people until
1030pm or until the end of a function. They would have access to the Club
Room and outside drinking area. The current opening hours apply to these
additional activities as well. This would include Club members and people
We are gathering views from people so we can advise the Licencing Board of
your views. We have to make comments by 15 May so time is short. If you

As part of the Scottish Government’s on-going strategic transport investment, Network Rail is continuing to deliver work to electrify the railway across central Scotland.
Following the electrification of the main line between Edinburgh and Glasgow (via Falkirk High) in the autumn of 2017, the current phase of works extends from Grangemouth and Falkirk, through Stirling to Alloa and Dunblane under the SDA electrification programme.
The section of the route between Greenhill Junction, Polmont Junction and Grangemouth Junction up to Larbert Junction is the latest to be electrified. Network Rail is advising lineside communities that the overhead lines will be LIVE and DANGEROUS.
Electrification of the railway will means increased capacity on routes by improving the infrastructure to enable longer, faster and greener modern electric trains to run.
