We run four regular events each year – the Lenzie New Year Jog, the summer Gala, the Charity Christmas Card Fayre and the Christmas Lights switch-on.
Community Police officers normally give us a monthly report on crimes that have taken place over the previous month and on initiatives in the Police programme. We can pass on to the Police any concerns or information raised by local residents.
In addition to the posts of Chair, Secretary and Treasurer, one member takes responsibility for reviewing and reporting on the monthly file of Planning applications and another keeps an eye on path access issues. We also respond to the many consultations raised by East Dunbartonshire Council and other public bodies.
We also try to help out local community groups if possible. For example, we provide donations to the Lenzie Youth Club for their annual football festival, to the Lenzie Churches Holiday Club for children and young people. Donations have also been made to groups such as Lenzie Scouts, Kirkintilloch Olympians, Kirkintilloch Players and Kirkintilloch Brass Band – groups which have provided assistance at our regular events.
Over recent years we have investigated issues such as flooding over the Auchinloch-Lenzie path beside the Gadloch and monitored the path network around the area. We restored the heritage clock at Queen’s Buildings to working order and you can now check the time as you hurry past for the train. We have worked with ScotRail to add some flowers to the environment of Lenzie Station. If you have an issue you would like us to consider, please use the contact form (it works!)
