Coalfield & Bo'net event which will be held in Bo'ness Town Hall on Saturday 3rd of March from 10:00am- 1:00pm, [open at 9:30 for tea/coffee and biscuits] this includes refreshments, free raffle prizes and completing the day with a light lunch.  

We want the people of Bo'ness & Blackness to come along and tell us what YOU would like for your group and  for Bo'ness & Blackness in general. Here is your chance to voice your thoughts and discuss your aspirations. Please book a place or places for your group, Individuals too, you don't need to be representing a group or charity. 

The charity wants good representation from people across Bo’ness and Blackness and is working with the respected Electoral Reform Society to deliver the engagement event. You’ll find full details at www.yourboness.wordpress.com. You can also jump straight to a sign-up form here: http://eepurl.com/decUbH

Coalfields has a pot of £20,000.00 to put towards your views/aspirations at the end of the two sessions. It is important that your group attends to help to DECIDE what projects will go ahead and be funded. We are also working on expanding that pot of money.


Rediscovering the Antonine Wall.

Online survey (no closing date specified so get in quick)

Romans Charge. Be More Roman. We Salute You

Charging at Big Roman Week

There is a pot of money to spend in Bo'ness on Roman themed activities. We do have a Bridgeness Slab and others will be erected along the Antonine Wall from Bo'ness to Old Kilpatrick in the west. This project takes in 5 Districts with Falkirk Council having a third of the wall in our district. 

The Friends of Kinneil are fighting very hard for improved play areas in Kinneil. The current play area has had a welcome but minor upgrade. We are hoping for more. Please lend a hand by giving up half an hour or so of your time. Other Roman themed ideas are welcome. 

Please fill out this survey. Note, there are places to add comments throughout but no final "any other comments" section. Something to keep in mind if you've got something to add.

East locality: Your place, your views by Falkirk Council. A Survey.

EDITOR Note. The corresponding event was in the Town Hall. Only 4 members of the community turned up. But it was really constructive and the team running the event learned a lot about our town and its needs. But please click the link below to fill out the survey.

We are carrying out a consultation to find out what residents in the Bo'ness, Blackness, Grangemouth and Upper Braes areas think and feel about the place they live.This is an important aspect of the locality planning process across the East of the area. You are invited to rate 14 things about your community such as public transport, play and recreation, safety and housing and community.

This consultation will be open to sometime in February 2018. If the link works then you should be good. 

We will use this information to identify future areas for improvement including how and where we deliver services to better meet the needs of the community.
