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
have any views please let us know through any of the options below:

Edinburgh Airport is asking for your views on the potential impact of altering flight paths above Edinburgh that maximise operational benefits and minimise community impact. One of the proposed arrival routes would go over the Larbert, Stenhousemuir and Torwood area 76 days per year with planes at a height of 4000-7000ft.
The consultation is open until 12 September 2016. More information and details of how to comment on the consultation, can be found at letsgofurther.com
