We are delighted to announce that we have a new administrator. Iona Philp joined us on 14th March 2022.

The volunteer drivers are continuing to do a great job of taking our service users to medical appointments locally and as far away as Glasgow. While Covid numbers are still worrying we are not providing drivers for social runs but this is being reviewed each month at committee meetings.

During the COVID situation we are continuing to help the elderly and infirm, of any age, in our community with a restricted service to comply with government policy.

The committee are meeting regularly, on Zoom, to ensure that the group continues to run smoothly and 25 volunteer drivers are taking people to medical appointments or doing shopping.

One casualty of the the present situation is that we cannot hold our usual meetings with the drivers. These meetings give the volunteers an opportunity to meet each other and exchange suggestions, concerns, etc., and are particularlyvaluable for new volunteers.

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.
