If you are a new mum why not come along to our buggy group? The feedback from the group has been very good. As well as meeting other mums, by being out in the fresh air and getting fitter, mums share information. Your local health visitor is also on hand to deal with any questions or concerns you may have. The group meet every Monday 12.30 p.m. at the car park opposite the Greenbank centre. The walk takes about 40 minutes. After the walk mums go back to the church hall where there is a very well run baby group. For more information contact Barbara McConnell on (01324) 504568/556 stepforth@falkirkcommunitytrust.org

Woodlands AGM

Polmont Woodlands Group is having its AGM at Greenpark Community Centre, Polmont on Thursday, June 19 at 7.30 p.m. – all Welcome.

Probus Club

“Breathes there a man with soul so dead who never to himself hath said - this is my own, my native land.” These inspirational and patriotic words from ‘The Lay of the Last Minstrel’ by Sir Walter Scott epitomised a most stunning coloured slide display presented to members of Polmont Probus Club at its last meeting. Behind the camera was Andrew Pearson whose presentation entitled ‘Audio Visual Experience’ belied the magnificence of the photographic images which embraced a range of areas familiar to most members, among them Colin Mailer who saw the house in which he and his wife set up home in Oban more than half-a-century ago which featured in the opening and closing sequences of that part of the illustrated display beguilingly entitled ‘West Coast’. From the Western Isles, including Iona, to images of Linlithgow and Bridges over the Forth, Andrew’s skill as a photographer, and as a compiler of a most memorable presentation, well earned the complimentary vote of thanks offered by Malcolm Lewis. President Bill Cartner was in the chair, having earlier admitted former member Fred Parkes as the club’s latest honorary member and Tom Struthers as its newest member.
