COMMUNITY champions and council officers could secure improvements for an area of Kirkintilloch this week.

Waterside Community Council members and council housing officers will make a list of areas for improvement during a walkabout.

Community council chairperson Bill Lapping said: “It’s been a few years since this was last done.

“We’ll be going round the village and identifying areas where work is needed.

“A bit of work could be done to the roads and back gardens.”

The community council is looking for more people to join them and have a say in the village.

The group’s next meeting is on Wednesday, July 20, in Waterside Subscription Hall at 7.30pm.
