Following on from the Community Matters event held on the 20-01-2017, Alloa Community Council have secured £4,000 that is to distribute in small grants to local groups for the benefit of the people of Alloa. As with the Community Matters event the public decide on the day the priority for the different projects. One of the great successes of the Community Matters event was that the different groups and members of these groups were able to network together and find ways to help each others. As a Community Council we want to develop our community by strengthening links between groups and allowing new groups to develop.
