The Drying Green Stayed Dry and a good sized crowd enjoyed the action by the river. We were entertained in one marquee with Dunblane High School Trad Group and Monument Performing Arts and by choirs in the other. The High Street had Highland Dancers, Pipers and various other acts.  The stalls were doing a thriving trade with food, arts and crafts all on sale.  There was even a sword fencing display.


















Over the summer there will be delays on the railway to Edinburgh.  This is due to electrication work in preparation for the Edinburgh - Glasgow new electric trains next year.  Electrification out to Dunblane will follow by 2018.


There will be replacement buses between Falkirk Grahamston and Edinburgh on the weekend – 6-7 June.

Over the 13-14 June weekend, buses will replace trains for passengers on both lines between Edinburgh and Falkirk Grahamston, to where Glasgow trains will be diverted.

Then from 15 June to 25 July, no trains will run between Edinburgh and Linlithgow, with replacement buses.

TSB Dunblane Makes A Difference at the Dunblane Centre

On Sunday 24 May, Cathy Gunn, Bank Manager at TSB Dunblane, made a difference at the Dunblane Centre by helping at the Centre's 'Vintage & Plant Fare'.

As part of TSB's 'Day To Make A Difference' initiative, Cathy helped to serve Afternoon Teas as well as manning the Book Stall.  This will help raise much-needed funds for The Dunblane Centre.

The Dunblane Centre is 'the beating heart' of Dunblane and does some amazing work for the community.

Cathy said 'I'm delighted to be supporting The Dunblane Centre as it gives so much back to the community'.

Gemma Greer, Centre Manager said 'We are delighted with the help Cathy gave us at our 'Vintage & Plant Fare' and we really value our partnership with TSB Dunblane.'

TSB and its customers in Dunblane have raised £161 for The Dunblane Centre, by holding a 'Name the Famous Couples' Quiz in April. The Dunblane Centre was chosen as the Bank’s first Local Charity Partner.

Instead of having a centrally chosen Charity of the Year, TSB Partners across Britain are empowered to recognise local causes which share the Bank’s passion for helping local communities thrive.  The Dunblane Centre was nominated for the work it does in the local community and will benefit from fundraising activities by TSB Partners working in the area throughout 2015.

Catherine Gunn, Bank Manger at TSB Dunblane, said 'The Dunblane Centre is a vital part of our local community and we are really proud to have them as our Local Charity Partner.'

Stewart Prodger, Trustee for The Dunblane Centre, said 'We are hugely grateful to TSB Dunblane for the money they are raising in 2015.  Having major businesses like TSB supporting us locally is a great way of making our community stronger.'

Notes to editors: As well as applications from charities and community enterprises, TSB Partners and the public were able to make their own nominations of local causes to include in the process.  Each nomination which met the eligibility criteria was entered into a random draw and given a fair chance of being selected.

Dunblane Community Council asked the five candidates standing for election to the Westminster Parliament for the Stirling Constituency, to set out their vision for the future of Dunblane Burgh Chambers.
