27 March 2020
It has been a busy week for us here at Falkirk Community Trust, ensuring a safe closure of many of our facilities and services. The Trust is a large organisation with over 80 venues including museums, parks, golf courses, sports facilities & swimming pools , libraries, theatre, cinema and visitor sites to run. People are at the heart of everything we do and we of course value the health and wellbeing of our customers and our staff, so many of them are working remotely from home during this time. Furthermore, the Trust has offered its support to Falkirk Council as they focus on meeting the needs of the most vulnerable in the community as the situation develops. So as a result, we have a much-reduced workforce on the ground to ensure that all of our buildings and parks are maintained during the closure, and we have to prioritise the tasks that are undertaken.
Callendar Park, Muiravonside Country Park, The Helix and Kinneil Estate will remain open for now so local people/residents can exercise, and we know that many of you will be keen to use them for your health and wellbeing. Our play areas and toilets are closed, as are some car parks - please check our website for details. As our workforce is reduced, you can help us by taking your litter away with you and remembering to follow the guidance on social distancing, stay local and do not travel.
Thank you for your continued support.
