Message from MCC Secretary


Many thanks to Gillian for her duties as secretary of Muckhart Community Council over the last year. As I’m sure you already know, Gillian is now chair and I have taken on the role of Secretary.

It is my intention to send out a weekly list of notices and other information to residents who have signed up to MCC. I will be moving this to Mailchimp over the next couple of weeks, this will give you more control to opt in/out of receiving communication from MCC. Anything urgent will be posted on our facebook page and/or website.

So, new notices/information this week-

1. 5-6-2173 The Clackmannanshire Council, A823 Muckhart (Temporary Prohibition of Driving, Parking and Loading) Order 2022

2. 5-6-2162 The Clackmannanshire Council, A91 Pool O Muckhart (Temporary Parking Suspension) Order 2022

4. Street Lighting Faults – register on Report it –

All street lighting faults should be registered on the new, redesigned clacks web fault reporting tool.

In September, Elect Her – a non-partisan CIC supporting women on their political journey – are hosting a month-long series of webinars, entitled Her Life in Politics, exploring every role in Scottish politics. Each Tuesday at 7:30-9pm, elected representatives from across the political spectrum will share their journey into politics and experiences since.


On Tuesday 20th 7:30-9pm, the webinar will focus on Community Councillors, hearing from Karen Harcus, Alison Lowe and Elizabeth Brown and with facilitation from former community councillor and chair Lauren Bennie. This webinar is a great opportunity for any woman motivated to create positive change in her community to learn how becoming a community councillor can help put ideas into action, learning from other women’s lived experience and meeting like-minded women along the way.


If you know a fantastic woman who you would like to encourage to become a community councillor, please invite them to this free online event so they can start their political journey today. Full details on the event, including how to book, are available here:


The full webinar programme is as follows:

All webinars are open to women from across Britain, either new or existing members of the Elect Her community, and will be BSL interpreted and include closed captioning. ’
