We’ve been really busy recently!

The volunteers have recently planted a hedge in Menstrie Community woodland – this hedge will provide a wonderful feature for the woodland and increase biodiversity within the area.

The Ochils Green Gym has got off to a great start with several new volunteers getting out into the local community and improving their green spaces with the help of project officer David Walsh.

The epic project has recently been highlighted in the Alloa Advertiser – highlighting the work completed so far and the start of the Ochil Green Gym.

The groups have recently completed their biggest project to date – a 200-metre-long boardwalk along the River Devon near Dollar. This Boardwalk was a massive undertaking in a difficult to reach location – the volunteers equipped themselves admirably showing determination, teamwork and skill to get the job done.

Our volunteers have been working their way through clearing the upland paths on the jubilee way, an overgrowth of gorse, brambles and broom has impeded walkers along this section of the path. In the coming months the project will seek to remedy these problems – if you spot damage or overgrowth on these paths that impede walkers – please do not hesitate to get in contact with David at d.walsh@tcv.org.uk.

Epic has recently partnered with Sustrans to improve biodiversity along cycle routes through Clacks. We have helped to sow wildflower meadows in Sauchie and Tillicoultry. We will be continuing this partnership in the months ahead.

TCV and epic will be attending the event at Wimpy park Alloa on the 2nd of June. There will be fun activities to be had at this massive event to promote children’s week.

If you would like to know more, please contact David at d.walsh@tcv.org.uk.
