Communities Along the Carron (CATCA)
Communities Along the Carron Association (CATCA) is a volunteer community group regenerating the River Carron and 16 Communities along it. The group does this via education, community engagement, connecting communities and through physical transformation. Conservation, community gardening, improving green spaces, reducing litter and flytipping are part of CATCA’s volunteering work. CATCA is the group that brought Cycling Without Age (CWA) to Falkirk. This involves taking elderly people out for Trishaw rides on specially designed bikes, so they can enjoy the green spaces and make them feel part of their community. This is now expanding throughout Scotland by CWA Scotland.
In 2018, Communities Along The Carron Association (CATCA) was awarded a Certificate of Distinction to further recognise the groups' achievements.
