For those of you who are planning to come along in person, you will be asked to observe the following Covid -19 protocols to help keep yourself and others safe.
Sanitise your hands as you enter the church.
Ensure that your name and contact details are recorded for Protect and Trace purposes.
Keep to the 1 metre distance apart from people not in your household.
Please bring a face covering in case this is needed.
Please also remember that there are no toilet facilities within the building at the moment, but the outdoor gravediggers’ toilet may be used if necessary.
As it will probably becoming dark towards the end of the meeting, please bring a torch to assist in lighting your route from the building along the path to the car park. In time, and provided that the necessary planning permission has been granted, we will be installing discreet external lighting along the path which will facilitate the use of the church in the evenings.
Trustees regret that on this occasion we are unable to provide teas or coffees due to Covid concerns.
How good it is to be able to invite the community to meet in the church after all this time. I hope very much that as many of you as possible are able to come along or join virtually. You will be most welcome.
Can you spare a few hours a month to support the local community?
Both Croftamie Community Council and Croftamie Community Trust are looking for local residents who can spare a few hours a month to represent the community either as a Community Councillor or as a member of the Community Trust.
If you are interest in supporting the community in either capacity or wish to know more about the activities of the Community Council and the Community Trust please contact [email protected] and we will get in touch.
We hope you’re all well! We are touch as representatives of the new Hub G63 project ‘The Grow Garden’, a community food garden, which is being created on a site between Killearn and Balfron, and which will link to the existing community garden in Drymen.
The aim is to develop the sites to create valuable community food growing opportunities, to grow nutritious and delicious produce to sell locally and to provide fresh fruit and veg to those who need it.
We will be looking for community volunteers and hope to become a community hub for all generations. Any help spreading the word or raising donations would be incredibly gratefully received.
We have launched a crowdfunder website to raise funds for the project (which today reached its initial target and moved onto its stretch fundraising goal) and have also installed a collection box at Killearn Co Op, as we know not everyone is comfortable with Facebook or donating online.
Fuller details of our funding partners And plans are in this link:
I wondered if you have a community mailing list or Facebook page that could help spread the word about the project and help gain donations? We have posted on Killearn For All and all the equivalent pages for the surrounding villages.
Here is our website to see the other projects we are running, including NeighbourFood which Killearn Church Hall have kindly helped facilitate this past year
Any ideas on spreading the word would be gratefully received.
Thanks in advance
Catherine, Ruth, Richard and Jane

We will continue to collect any supplies left at the But and Ben, so any dried or tinned foods you can contribute will be much appreciated.
If you are anyone you know, would benefit from some support in these difficult and unprecedented times, please get in touch for a chat in confidence. Contact [email protected] or speak to any of the community councillors.
