Constitution of the Society – What do we do ?

Our constitution has the following objectives:

  • To stimulate public interest in, and care for the beauty, history and character of the area.
  • To develop and foster community spirit in Muckhart, Glendevon and the surrounding area.
  • To encourage the preservation, development and improvement of features of general public amenity or historic interest.
  • To encourage appropriate planning in Muckhart, Glendevon and surrounding area
  • To pursue these ends by means of meetings, exhibitions, lectures, publications, conferences, social events and publicity and promotion of schemes of a charitable nature.

Past Events – How and where do we do that ?

In recent years we have organised Burns Suppers, Open Gardens, Jazzebecues, talks on the V&A coming to Dundee, our local Roman Camp, Talking to Elephants and lots more.  These events were held in the Coronation Hall or local gardens, houses.

Recently we purchased a marquee for use by the community.  The Marquee can hold 70 seated comfortably and measures 6 * 12 metres.  A nominal hire fee will be charged for private hire, otherwise the marquee is free for any community group/event.  A deposit will be required to cover any damage but will be fully refunded if the marquee is returned in the same condition as it was despatched.  If you would like to find out more please contact Alison Peden on 07766780538 or Ajpeden.watson@googlemail.com or Sheila Fisher on sheshe5@hotmail.com
