Muckhart Community Transport Surveys

Muckhart Community Council are keen to find out about your unmet transport needs. One potential solution would be Community Transport. Discussions have been taking place with Glenfarg Community Transport Group (GCTG) about a possible collaboration to progress this issue.

Community transport is not just about moving people from point A to point B.  It is about fostering a sense of belonging, bridging divides, and empowering individuals to access education, employment, healthcare, and social opportunities that are the bedrock of a thriving community.  Community transport provides flexible and accessible community-led solutions in response to unmet local transport needs.

How to Participate: There are two surveys, one for everyone and one for those aged under 22. These are being delivered to your letter box and word versions can be accessed here.

Thank you for taking the time to help.

MPS – Christmas trees

Glebe field willow weaving

We are now looking for keen volunteers to help us deliver a series of measures to help the long-
term success of this project and ensure it continues to benefit the community and the wildlife in
the area.
We will need volunteers on Saturday 18 th November, from 10am to 3pm, to help with willow
spiling*, clearing sediment build-up from the leaky dams and deflectors, seeding, planting of
wildflower plugs, and possibly some tree planting. These are aimed to help increase the
biodiversity of the area and ensure that the measures implemented continue to work and slow the
flow in the event of a flood.
*Willow spiling is a traditional technique that consists of alive willow rods being woven between
fixed stakes on the ground to create a barrier that slows the water flow.
If you, or someone you know may be interested in helping us with the delivery of this project,
please, sign up to our mailing list below or email/phone our Project Officer Mario Palomo at:
