The excellent Friends of the Ochils are having their AGM at 7pm on Tuesday 6th November in The Alloa Town Hall, Tommy Downs Room. The AGM will be followed, after a short break for refreshments at around 7.30pm, by a presentation on the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) by Its Chief Executive, Keith Geddes, who will be accompanied by Simon Rennie, Head of the CSGN Support Unit. The CSGN aims to "change the face of Central Scotland, by restoring and transforming the landscape of an area stretching from Ayrshire and Inverclyde in the west, to Fife and the Lothian’s in the east". Its work could have a particularly significant impact on the Ochils and the Surrounding countryside and the Friends of the Ochils Committee would like to invite representatives of other like-minded organisations to the Presentation. We feel that it is important that we hear not just what the CSGN proposes for the Ochil’s and adjacent countryside but that we also give other organisations with which we work the opportunity to hear about the CSGN. If you intend to attend the meeting or if you need further information, please contact the secretary of Friends of the Ochils: David Scott, on 01786 832248 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
