Unfortunately, due to a change in circumstances, we are looking to employ a co-ordinator to work 20 flexible hours per week, from home.
The successful applicant will need to have a good telephone manner, computer skills, local knowledge and a sympathetic, caring approach to our mainly elderly service users.

The co-ordinator is responsible for organising drivers from a pool of 30/35 volunteers to meet requests for lifts to medical and social appointments. Amongst other things, the job will also include providing support for the volunteers, record keeping and building up a relationship with PKC Transport and the local community.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone who wants to become involved in their community.

Application Form should be submitted to David Aird, 1 Elm Row, Glenfarg PH2 9PQ, or by email to d.aird@outlook.com

Deadline for applications is 15th March 2020.


On 27th September, 2019 a silver birch tree was planted in the grounds of Loch Leven Health Centre in memory of Ann Munro who sadly died in April this year. During torrential rain the tree was planted by Jane and Ross, Ann's daughter and son with approximately 40 people looking on. Hopefully the tree will thrive, just as KVG&ROS did during the 37 years that Ann was the co-ordinator.

The tree planting was followed by a buffet lunch. Chairman Sandy Smith thanked all the volunteer drivers and committee members. He also thanked and presented flowers to Nesta Hogg who has retired from driving after almost 20 years.
