We are running out of copies of Dunblane’s Green Travel Maps
Many thanks to all those who completed our Dunblane Map survey; so many positive comments showed a high demand and wide variety of use and benefits for locals of all ages, visitors and businesses. So funding applications are sent out; to update the maps, print 10,000 Green Travel Maps, renew the online licence, and perhaps develop a business sheet version. See full report here.

A spatial overview of Dunblane Town Centre
Each year through the Braes of Doune Community Benefit, grant funding of around £14,500 is given by the joint owners of the Windfarm , Greencoat UK Wind PLC and Hermes Infrastructure, to local community groups in the Dunblane area.
Nominees from Dunblane Community Council and Dunblane Development Trust join together to form the Dunblane Windfarm Committee and this committee receives applications from groups active in our local communities and makes recommendations on how best to distribute the funds available.
This year, 13 groups were helped over a broad range of activities including the Dunblane Fling, Dunblane Soccer Club , Dunblane Preschool Play Association, Dunblane in Bloom, Dunblane Rangers and Rainbows and Victoria Hall. It is hoped that more groups local to the Dunblane area will continue to apply for financial help. Applications are taken late Summer each year, and full details of how to apply are available at Dunblane Development Trust
The photo shows members of the Committee, successful recipients with Jimmy Hansson and Emma Lewis representing the Windfarm owners.

Discover Dunblane are bringing back the magnificent Christmas Extravaganza again this November with late night shopping, entertainment and the chance to meet Santa and his reindeer.
Dunblane’s local independent retailers will be showcasing everything the town has to offer with extended opening hours from 5pm until 9pm on Thursday 27th November 2014. There will be festivities galore for everyone to enjoy so why not come along and experience our winter wonderland.
Our celebrity guest, Judy Murray will open the event in style by taking a ride through Dunblane High Street with Santa and his reindeer who have been generously sponsored for the third year running by the FES Group. The Cathedral bells will then ring out to signify the start of the evening’s merriments and welcome all to this magical event.
Children can visit Santa and his elves in his Grotto and post their Christmas lists in Santa’s specially made Golden Post-box – if an address is included Santa will even return a personal reply. Children will get the chance to chat to Santa and his elves and have a picture taken as a lasting memento of the occasion.
There is a full programme of events for all to enjoy, with lots to see and experience including, bell ringers, carol singers, choirs and even acrobatic elves. With help from dancing star Judy Murray the streets will be decked full of entertainment and fun. We are delighted to again have the support from the Dunblane Development Trust, to help ensure the event runs smoothly.
All of Dunblane’s bars and restaurants will be open and there will be a fantastic choice of hot food and drinks available to help get everyone in the Christmas spirit. The shops will feature exclusive special offers and promotions and with a wide choice of independent retailers your Christmas stockings can be filled with unique and varied presents that will be sure to bring Christmas cheer.
Dunblane is easily located and there is free parking on Perth Road and the two main car parks located close to the High Street.
