The Communities Along the Carron Association (CATCA) welcomed representatives from funders, community groups, government, schools, environmental agencies, partners and individuals to its sixth annual general meeting and Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service presentation at Larbert High School 

The evening began with a garden reception in the Larbert High School community garden, a centerpiece of CATCA’s most recent work and a shining example of local growing in partnership with schools and the community.

There was also an opportunity to try out one of the two new Trishaw bikes which are part of the flagship Cycling Without Age project CATCA is running this year.

CATCA project co-ordinator Christine Bell, accompanied by chair Ian Howarth, led the audience to the school assembly hall for a presentation on all of CATCA’s current projects.
