The KLSB Community Group (Keeping Larbert and Stenhousemuir Beautiful)
We hope that everyone has been enjoying the gardens and the floral arrangements in our Stenhousemuir and Larbert communities so far. As we come into early autumn we should start to consider preparing the gardens & tubs for the spring. There is still time to do that and as such we would like to invite the community to come together and join our already established team. This is much more than volunteering in the community, this is about being part of the community.
You do not have to be an experienced gardener or even have green fingers. We are simply looking for anyone who would like to come out on any day that suits them and work with our team. You will have a say on what goes in the ground, what and where our planters are placed and much more importantly, you will get to meet new people and make friends at our monthly meetings.
Eglinton Demonstration Community Food Gaden will provide a range of therapeutic activities for community use and will directly support a number of client groups such as learning disabilities, mental health, ex-offenders, older people, veterans and people experiencing drug and alcohol problems. it will provide all members of the community with learning opportunities related to gardening, growing food and cooking. It will enable individuals to learn new skills, tools and coping mechanisms and promote positive changes in health diet and lifestyle.
We are developing a pioneering Scotland-wide path network for the benefit of all and we need volunteers in Orkney to help us. This is a great opportunity to improve your confidence in navigation skills and help you learn more about your local area. In Orkney you will be auditing data on existing paths or capturing new, currently un-mapped paths.
You will be:
-Participating in a short training workshop
-Working with the Ramblers Scotland team to gather or capture data on paths in Orkney.
-Audit data on existing paths or capture new, currently un-mapped paths.
-Accurately assessing local Orkney paths to best capture the type of information we’re looking for
-Providing feedback on the process to help inform the project going forward
We believe that everyone should be able access the outdoors in Scotland with confidence and there is great potential to improve the mapping of paths in Scotland, to help more people get active and healthy and to feel confident to explore our wonderful nature and landscapes.

Volunteers are needed to regularly walk a section of the St Magnus Way to check the route, clear litter and vegetation and possibly do some grass strimming.
The St Magnus Way is a 58-mile pilgrimage route through Mainland Orkney, inspired by the life and death of Magnus, Orkney’s patron saint.
You would be maintaining your section to keep it accessible and safe for users and you would be reporting any issues to the St Magnus Way committee to manage.
A great way to get outdoors, keep fit and enjoy the scenery and wildlife while conserving Orkney's long distance path for local walkers and visiting pilgrims.
St Colms has a large polytunnel and garden area with cold frames where they grow and sell plants. We are looking for volunteers to assist adults with learning disabilities with horticulture activities.This could be in the polytunnel or outdoors. Tasks include sowing seeds, planting out seedlings, weeding and watering.
