Rest Centres and door-to-door welfare checks will continue in power-hit areas of Stirling Council tonight (Wed Dec 1st) as temperatures are set to drop below zero.
Rest Centre Update

Between 60-100 properties in the area surrounding Callander are understood to be facing a sixth consecutive night without power from SSEN.

Stirling Council respite and welfare provisions will therefore continue to be available at Thornhill Primary School and McLaren Leisure Centre until 10pm.

With the Met Office also predicting temperatures as low as -2 in rural Stirling, residents are encouraged to spread the word and check in on neighbours ahead of a cold night.

Council gritting teams are already treating surfaces and, in the meantime, a multi-agency team led by Stirling Council will continue door-to-door checks until 8pm tonight after visiting around 125 properties yesterday.

McLaren Leisure Centre will then open its doors to those needing a hot shower or somewhere to charge their phone on Thursday, 2 December from 7.30am.

If you or someone you know is still without power, please call SSEN on 105 for help with respite or accommodation support, or our Contact Centre on 01786 404040 if you have concerns related to care provision.

Key Points:

  • Rest Centre @ Thornhill PS 4pm-10pm, FK8 3PX
  • Welfare @ McLaren Leisure 7.30am - 10pm FK17 8JP
  • Call SSEN on 105 to notify of no power or ask for assistance/accommodation.

Please spread the word to those in your community.
