About us

Rotary Club of Larbert

The famous cattle trysts were held in Larbert from 1782 with as many as 150,000 cattle, sheep and horses brought there for sale from all over Scotland. The arrivsl of the railways in the 1840s ended the trysts.

The sculpture shown above is fabricated from cast iron reflecting the connection with the nearby Carron Iron Works. The highland cow was also the logo of McCowan's toffee factory, makers of Highland Toffee, established in Stenhousemuir in 1922.

Other places of interest close by are The Falkirk Wheel, The Kelpies, Callander House and Stirling Castle. Glasgow and Edinburgh are only 30 minutes away by car or train.

 Welcome to our website.

We are a small but very active club in our community.

Our projects for this Rotary year include collecting the plastic tops from milk and soft drink bottles, (see below for more details of this project), working with Keeping Larbert and Stenhousemuir Beautiful (KLSB) including assisting in their Community Food Pantry. We are also investigating some innovative and exciting new ideas for community projects in the future.

Plans are being put in place for new, innovative and exciting ways of doing Rotary. Please feel free to contact us to find out more about the opportunities which Rotary can open for you.

We always welcome visitors and new members.

Detais of how to get in touch are shown elsewhere on our web pages.

DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) SITUATION ALL WEEKLY MEETINGS OF THE CLUB HAVE BEEN CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

---000---

Although we are not currently meeting face to face we are still holding online meetings via Zoom.

If you would like to join us in one of our meetings please email LarbertRotary@gmail.com to get the next meeting's login details.


---000---

Just because we are not meeting face to face does not mean we have stopped doing things and carrying on with our projects and plans.

Right now we are collecting the plastic tops from milk cartons which we can convert into cash to enable us to continue working within our community and, where required, further afield.

There is only one condition attached to this, the bottle tops must have a number 2 inside the recyling triangle. We can only accept tops with the number 2 stamped on them.

To arrange for bottle tops to be collected from you or to find out where to deliver them contact us by email at

LarbertRotary@gmail.com

and someone will contact you to arrange things.

Thank you for your support.
