Falkirk East MSP, Angus MacDonald was pleased to join local community volunteers at the Slamannan Fruit and Veg Barra during his recent surgery tour of the Braes. The Barra is now open in the Slamannan Community Education Centre in Bank Street and is run by Community Education staff and local volunteers on Wednesdays from 10am until 1pm.
Mr MacDonald stated: “I was pleased to meet the volunteers that run the Fruit Barra and delighted to find out that it is successful, these volunteers sell the fruit and veg with no profit with the assistance of Balquhatstone Mains Farm.
I’m thrilled that other villages within the constituency have adopted a similar community-based initiative; both are well worth supporting if you live nearby.”
