Public Partnership Forum (Clackmannanshire PPF)
The PPF is the way we, the members of the public, engage with the NHS and it meets every two months in Alloa, in the Whins Resource centre.
This is the best opportunity for the general public to interact with the decision-making process. Your opinions are listened to, healthy discussions take place, and changes can be made.
In 2005 the NHS Board set up the Clackmannanshire Community Health Partnership (CHP), a legally constituted entity, to involve the public, voluntary organisations, local authorities and health services in securing a healthier future for local communities. - Ed.

Look after your car

- put our cars in the garage or in the driveway;
- consider installing a CCTV system which will cover the driveway.
SEPA (Scottish Environment Protection Agency)
January 2011: Link to a larger version
SEPA is responsible to the Scottish Government for protecting, monitoring and improving Scotland's air, land and water.
Among its activities, SEPA operates a flood warning service.
In January 2011, SEPA issued a 'Flood Watch' and then raised it to a 'Flood Warning' several hours before the River Devon overflowed its banks (image on this page). Flood water from the river had previously approached the southern edge of the village; for example in November 2008 and November 2009. None of these flood events reached houses in the village.
SEPA operate the Floodline Direct service which will send flood update messages, text or voice, direct to your phone. To sign up for this service and to be added to the mailing list for future newsletters, complete the enquiry form at this link.

Register of Electors
The Register of Electors is published on 1st December each year and lists the names and addresses of everyone registered to vote. It is available to view, under supervision, in the local library , the council headquarters and the office of the Electoral Registration Officer (ERO).
At least annually the ERO contacts each address, usually in September, by
posting a form asking to check & return a form to confirm the details of eligible resident electors.
It is a legal requirement to respond to the ERO when requested to do so.
Anyone who changes address, name or entitlement to register to vote can apply at any time to have their details included or amended. A statutory timetable of updates (monthly between 1st December & 1st September each year) is published on the ERO's website. Application forms are available to download from the website and are also available in the local library.
When an election is announced electors only have until 11 working days before polling day to return completed and signed voter registration forms and/or applications to vote by post. Forms are available in the local library or from the website.
