Killin, what can I say, home for my family for hundreds of years. My dad, Allan Walker, would have loved to see you banding together to keep your community going . You are an amazing village and Ed and I will see you soon. Good luck ! Ali X

So one day I was chatting to Katy about the future of the Post Office etc. etc. I came to Killin in 1982, and to be fair never really saw a future in a wee place! The rest is history. I now cannot envisage being back in a city or anywhere else. However it is clear to me that Killin needs things like the paper shop, Post Office, Co-op to be a viable place for people to enjoyably live. The words came out of my mouth that day, why can't "we" buy the paper shop. There are times since that I have tried to shove those words back into my mouth, but it wasn't as daft an idea.....please support it. Killin is a wonderful place to live, to bring up kids, and more. We need though to support local services.
