Easter fun in the country park

Two prominent local charities, Plean’s Voice and Friends of Plean County Park, teamed up to bring a day of Easter fun on Sunday (24 March).


Both groups came together to plan and organise an Easter Scavenger Hunt within Plean Country Park - a first for the groups and the park.







Around 500 people were estimated to have been in the event which also included a tombola stall, raffle prizes, along with food and drink.


Over 200 Easter egg prizes were won.


Trishaw rides were provided by Cycling Without Age Scotland William Simpson’s Stirling Chapter.


Plean’s Voice chairperson Bob McWilliam said: “This was the first time that we have done this kind of event and it was great to team up with Friends of Plean Country Park to show how both organisations are working for the good of the area.


“A lot of work and planning went into the event with StirlingCouncil and Greenspace ranger to ensure there was no litter left behind or damage to the park.


“There was a real buzz in the park and it was great to see so many people in it for the event.


“Early signs show that we have raised around £400 which will go back into the projects we are looking at carrying out within the village.”


Fran Barr, Treasurer of Friends of Plean Country Park, said: "The event was a great opportunity to bring together two local groups who care about Plean and the wonderful asset of Plean Country Park on the doorstep.


"With the loss of the Greenspace Ranger Service due to the recent budget cuts we worry about what this means for all of the greenspaces within Stirling Council and in particular Plean Country Park. To be able to have so many people and families enjoying the outdoors and also raising funds for the community was absolutely brilliant."
