Kirkintilloch business improvement district (BID)
The strength of BIDs is in their simplicity. By pooling and sharing resources – local businesses, working with other private, public and third sector partners, take a leading role in improving the local economic conditions by delivering an agreed plan beyond that delivered by local and national government. This is growing in Kirky – watch this space!
Kirkintilloch Action is a Your Kirky Facebook page which promotes opportunities to take part in community clean ups and shares results. Remarkably it is loads of fun! A couple of hours in the company of like-minded people, chats with passers-by, and we all do it because we love Kirky.
East Dunbartonshire ECO
A forum for discussion and action about local Eco and Environmental issues. Members are limited to the area in and around East Dunbartonshire to ensure the chat and actions remain relevant to the local area. Please feel free to share freely and suggest other ways we might push Environmental and Eco causes locally.
