Clackmannanshire Council is working with Clackmannanshire CTSI and Greenspace Scotland to develop and deliver memorials to those whose lives have been touched by Covid in the local area.
Clackmannanshire Council and CTSI are setting up a Local Reference Group that will oversee the development of ideas for a memorial(s) and the delivery of these ideas. We want this Local Reference Group to be as representative of Clackmannanshire’s communities as possible and are particularly interested to hear from people who are from groups such as disabled and young people and faith groups, along with those who may have been touched by the pandemic in a more direct way.
We are also keen that the group has relevant skills to manage the delivery of the project in Clackmannanshire and so are keen to hear from people who have experience in culture and arts, in project and budget management, and in consultation and community facilitation. The Local Reference Group should represent as much of the geography of Clackmannanshire as possible.
Council spokesperson, Councillor Donald Balsillie, said:
“This partnership will recognise the lives of people of Clackmannanshire who have been affected by Covid-19 and will aim to be an imaginative ,practical and touching reminder of the efforts our communities went to help one another during this unsettling time.
“I urge all members of our communities with the skills, knowledge or lived experience to be part of the Local Reference Group to hep deliver this important project.”
There are eight spaces on the group available with three organisational spaces taken up by CTSI, Clackmannanshire Council and NHS Forth Valley. Places on the group are voluntary and unpaid.
Full details and an application form to be part of the Local Reference Group can be found on the Council's website.
