Shaky Bridge – tree

Update:  11th Feb 2019

The canopy of the tree that the Shaky Bridge goes through will be removed in its entirety in the coming week (11th Feb). Preliminary works were carried out last week, with the remainder of the canopy scheduled to be removed (weather permitting) from Tuesday.

The decision to remove the canopy from the tree has been openly discussed and has the approval of the local community (via community council and development trust) and both landowners.

The rational for the removal of the canopy is the extensive rot in the limbs and the base of the tree present a real risk that the tree will fail, causing significant damage to the shaky bridge. Community Greenspace are working with the community council to secure funding to retain the bridge *and its shaky character, for generations to come.

It is important to note that the works will take place without formally closing the bridge, however if the area is roped off, path users are asked to prevent from accessing the site until advised by our contractor that it is safe to do so (no more than a few minutes).

Please contact Perth and Kinross Council, Community Greenspace if you require further information.

Evaluation Training

Not just a story

For Perth and Kinross Council

This workshop will take place over two half days

Learning outcomes

Do you need help evaluating your community project? If the answer is “Yes”  then why not come along to one of our FREE training sessions?

We would be delighted to invite you to take part in some free training to support the process of evaluating your community project. On this training you will learn to develop ways to gather evidence and evaluate a funded project. This, in turn, will enable you to clearly demonstrate the positive impact your group has on people’s life experiences. This kind of evaluation process can lead to improved collection of evidence to support future funding applications.

Evaluation Support Scotland will be running two free workshops over 2 half-days at:

Mid-Atholl Hall, Ballinluig on Monday 18th Feb and 4th March from 1-4pm. Attendance at both sessions will be essential.

OR

Bankfoot Church Centre on Monday 25th Feb and 11th March from 1-4pm. Attendance at both sessions will be essential.

This workshop will focus on 4 key areas of evaluation:

  • Review how you currently hear, record and use people’s experiences
  • Use simple methods to collect and record and analyse people’s experiences
  • Understand the difference between experiences and case studies
  • Explain why and how peoples’ experiences and more qualitative feedback can be used in monitoring & evaluation

See programme for more detail. Not just a story2 programme

As spaces on the workshops are limited to 14, this training is being run on a first come first served basis. If you would like to book a FREE space on this training, please email us on DunkeldComlearn@pkc.gov.uk
