An impressive series of outdoor artworks has been created by young people in Alloa. The art, created by four young people from Alloa Academy, is displayed on the National Cycle Network Route 76, near Alloa Tower.
The artists used clay to bring to life elements of local heritage and wildlife, drawing inspiration from stags, birds, intricate textures and the essence of Alloa's architecture. The artworks are part of the wider ’ShapeChangers’ public art project along the National Cycle Network in Scotland.
The full programme of Forth Valley events is available via our events diary.

A new Customer Contact Policy and a refreshed Customer Charter was agreed at Council on 5 October.
The Customer Charter seeks to establish a set of commitments and standards on how Council services respond to and manage customer enquiries.
The Council will always aim to support customers to engage with employees constructively to provide the best possible level of customer. However, it is sometimes necessary to take action to protect staff from unacceptable behaviours.
The Customer Contact Policy sets out for staff and citizens how we identify and respond to such instances.
Please refer to the important announcement regarding certain licence renewals and new applications via our web page.

A new initiative has launched in Scotland this week to encourage people to respect the space of others when they’re out and about. The Distance Aware scheme offers everyone who would feel more comfortable when they have more room, the chance to wear an easily recognisable symbol to show others they need space and care.
The polite prompt is designed to support those who are worried about being in public places, for whatever reason, and help them feel more confident when going about their daily life.
Free lanyards and badges featuring the Distance Aware shield are available from libraries across the country, with badges also free to pick up in Asda stores or online from participating charities, free or for a small donation. We can all play our part as we adapt to living with Covid-19.
A reminder that Tillicoultry Glen path remains closed from the first bridge. An alternative route is available on the east side of the glen. High water levels have washed part of path away and there are several sections where the path is undercut and in danger of collapse. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries.
