Another Gala day over

Another gala day over, we would like to thank everyone for coming along to help support the day. Also a huge thank you to those who helped the day go ahead. 
Debbie for another amazing tea room. Jon, Chris, Colin and Kevin for the fab BBQ – they all looked ‘cooked’ by the end if it! The amazing bar staff! Claire and her helpers selling raffle tickets – and so many others for helping with the setup on Friday night putting up gazebos and stalls. It’s what makes for a fabulous day, everyone just mucking in! 
Maitland did a grand job, especially as he’s been suffering from a sore throat for the last month ! Oh and the band for another great set – you play for 4hrs and we still want more!
We hope everyone enjoyed themselves, as we certainly did

Broadband update

The Cabinet at Dasherhead Farm is being done at the start of September (confirmed Roadworks planned)  , which will allow Digital Scotland to say that they delivered on their promise of coverage for the Gargunnock area by Summer 2014 ( Digital Scotland recently updated all of their pages to say Area and not exchange!).
At this point its unlikely we will see any  progress to the village service before Summer next year, as that’s the dates for Phase 2 of the deployment which hopefully we will be included in.
