  • There is a need for ongoing vigilance regarding bogus workmen in the area. Residents who are concerned about a workman who has ‘cold called’ should tell them they will be contacting the Police and then do so using the 101 number or Crimestoppers. Take details of vehicles if possible.

    👫☀️ PLAY PARK UPDATE FROM BALLOCH VILLAGE TRUST - MARCH 2017 ☀️👫

    We have now raised £28265 of the £38290 needed to install the design preferred by the community.  We hope to have achieved the target by the summer and be able to install the equipment soon after.

    Special thanks to Harry Gow Bakers, TM Tarpaulins, LCC Live and Highland Campervans for their generous donations to the project.

    Thank you also to those who attended the Balloch Culloden Baptist Church carol service and who contributed to the retiring collection which was kindly donated to the project.

    We have also been awarded funding from the Silverhill Trust and The Stafford Fund.

    We have submitted several other applications and hope to hear some more good news soon.

    If you wish to contribute or help in any way please contact ballochplaypark@gmail.com  


Community Woodland
Following the felling of trees on the east side of the woodland, a working group has been meeting on a regular basis to begin to tidy up the woodland area. 

The Plan

The Community Council has approved a Woodland Management Plan for Balloch Community Woodland. The work will focus on removing some of the Sitka Spruce and other non-native species and improving the paths. This will allow more light to reach the forest floor and encourage wild flower growth. The work will be undertaken on behalf of the Community Council by Balloch Village Trust who will repair, resurface and realign the paths, providing a better environment for the individuals and groups who use the woodland. BVT will endeavour to keep the area beside the paths clear of nettles and brambles and also encourage dog owners to clear up after their pets.
