Dunblane by Cycle is a community group created in 2017 that is affiliated to Cycling UK after emerging from the success of Discover Dunblane's participation in European Mobility Week in September 2016.
Our aim is to be a "pedalling Dunblaners' forum" that promotes and supports cycling as a practical and safe means of everyday transport for all ages within, to and from the town.
We held a launch event in May 2017 in the Braeport Centre when we invited all committed or aspirant cyclists to drop-in to:
- learn more about our plans for the year
- get advice on how to prepare your bike for summer
- sample some of Dunblane's cycle ways
- have some family fun
The club meet once a fortnight on Siundays and use their own cars sharing the cost of transport. The winter programme normally has low level walks within easy travel distance. In summer we go further and higher!
All walks (except where noted in programme) leave Dunblane at 9am from the car park by Tesco. Membership : single £3, Family £5
The Dunblane Likhubula Link joins the community of Dunblane in Scotland with the community of Likhubula, a rural community in the Mulanje district of Malawi.
Since June 2005 we have directly supported projects focusing on clean water supplies, agriculture, and education, as well as maintaining frienship links between the two communities.
We are trying to raise funds to provide suport to our friends and partners in Likhubula. Any help you could give would be hugely appreciated.
You can donate here. Thank you for your support.
Dunblane Allotment Group (DAG) was formed in 2004 with the aim of re-opening the derelict allotment site at the Laighhills, which had fallen into disuse in the early 1980s. The next nearest sites are at Bridge of Allan and Stirling with long waiting lists. This has been a major development for the Dunblane community, providing a significant new amenity for the town in line with the current environmental agenda.
The 60,000 square metre site houses 53 plots of varying sizes. Work by 3 volunteers began in November 2004 and has progressed from there to a constituted organisation run by volunteers. The Management Committee meets monthly with open meetings held four times per year. Volunteers also work regularly to maintain the site and work parties are organised at intervals throughout the year to tidy up. The Annual Potato Day is held on the first Saturday in March (Check 'What's On' for the details). There are now 5 starter plots for members to try before taking on a full plot. Read more about DAG here.
In April 2016, a group from the Criminal Justice Team have made life much safer for the members of the Dunblane Allotment Group by relaying paths, which had become overgrown and very slippery, in the allotment. Read More
