Welcome to Blair Drummond Hall

Blair Drummond hall is set in the beautiful farm landscape of the Carse of Stirling, famous for its Timothy hay. The community has maintained a hall on this site since 1962 and it is an important venue for many local events.

It is located on the A84 approx 5 miles north east of Stirling. The postcode is FK9 4UX.

The current hall was opened in November 2005 after 5 years of fundraising by the Blair Drummond Community Hall Association.

Blair Drummond Hall serves the community of Blair Drummond which stretches from the Drip Bridge in the East (close to the City of Stirling), to almost Thornhill in the West  and from Bridge of Teith in the North, to almost Gargunnock in the South.

The hall is owned and run by the Blair Drummond community and is a popular venue for weddings, ceilidhs,family parties, meetings, sports classes and other social events.

*****************************

We have been asked by Stirling Council and Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise to tell you about the following information:

The response from Stirling’s people during the Covid-19 situation has been amazing, with over 200 individuals, groups, third sector organisations or organisations coming forward to offer support to others so far. Stirling Council and Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise (SVE) will now start working closely with this network to support those most in need.

Support Requests

If you are vulnerable, or you know of somebody who is vulnerable, self-isolating and has no immediate support available:

Call 01786 404040

Email communitysupport@stirling.gov.uk

Please let us know who needs support, how to contact them by telephone and if they have any condition we need to know about.

They will be contacted and one of our Local Co-ordination Teams will look at the most appropriate way of getting support to them, through the local Community Response Groups, Third Sector organisations, a local volunteer or more formal support if they require it.

General information on local services is available on the Council website and advice on Covid-19 is available on the Government and NHS websites. People can still volunteer to support this effort through the www.investinstirling.com/key-sectors/volunteering site.

******************************************************

Stirling Council and Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise (SVE) are now asking volunteers and local community groups to register and be part of a co-ordinated response to the Covid-19 emergency. By volunteering you can make a big difference in your area and on a national level.

We are developing a recognised, formal Stirling area wide network to support those in need at a local level. By being part of a formal coordinated effort, our response will be stronger and safer for those vulnerable individuals and families needing support.

Stirling Council and SVE are fully tied in to the national volunteering agencies and their campaigns.

The www.investinstirling.com/key-sectors/volunteering site will allow community groups and individuals to register their interest, by registering you are helping us to provide co-ordinated support across the Stirling area.

Please register

  • As individuals who would be willing to become Befrienders, Volunteer drivers, Volunteers assisting with essential groceries and collecting prescriptions or to assist with food preparation for vulnerable people.

  • As local community groups who can organise a local response and provide assistance in their area. Individual members of groups need not register just a primary contact.

  • As third sector organisations who can support the collective effort or commit resources at a local level.

After registration, you will be contacted by a Local Co-ordination Team in your area. We will ensure that all volunteers’ health & wellbeing is protected by following all official guidelines related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

************************************************

DUE TO THE CURRENT CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS ALL EVENTS AT THE HALL HAVE BEEN CANCELLED TILL FURTHER NOTICE.

********************************************

Our Grapevine newsletter delivery people have been putting notes through the doors of Blair Drummond residents whom we think might need assistance if they have to self-isolate.

If you know of someone who lives in Blair Drummond and that you think may fall into this category please email bdgrapevine@gmail.com with their name and address details and the Hall Committee will get in touch with them. Please mark your email as Strictly Confidential. We may have already been in touch with them but there may be the chance that a household has been inadvertently overlooked so your help with this is invaluable.

We will be putting notices on this Facebook page as well as our website www.blairdrummondhall.co.uk  to keep people up to date with what’s happening in the area with regards to openings, closures and assistance.

Please share this message with all your Blair Drummond friends and family on Facebook so that they can be kept up to date and know where to look for local information. If possible and you know of a household which doesn’t have Facebook access or internet access maybe you could print out any news for them and pop it through their letterbox.
