LINLITHGOW COMMUNITY SURVEY:
This is part of a community survey organised by the Linlithgow Churches in partnership with Linlithgow Community Development Trust. The aim is to gather opinions on a range of issues from people throughout Linlithgow Ward, and how they feel it could be improved as a place to live and work. Findings will be used by community organisations to ensure their projects address the needs and wishes of the community, to secure funding and support local improvements. The questionnaire should take around 10 minutes to complete.

Have you heard of Kiribati?
Kiribati is a Pacific Island nation (population: 100,000) and as one of the most remote places on the planet, it is seemingly far-removed from the pressures of modern life. Yet it is one of the first countries that must confront the main existential dilemma of our time: imminent annihilation from sea-level rise.
As part of the lead-up to COP26, a film about Kiribati is being shown at the Bo'ness Hippodrome 7.30 next Tuesday (26th Oct). Here's the link for tickets (free) and for link to a preview
