Dollar Twinning Committee

In 1981 Dollar became twinned with La Ville aux Dames, a small town just outside Tours in the Loire Valley of France. The Touraine area has a lot to recommend itself to visitors. It is famous for its many grand chateaux along the Loire and its tributaries, some of which have strong links with former rulers of Scotland. They are proud of their links with Scotland and Mary Queen of Scots in particular. Indeed, one of the streets of La Ville aux Dames is named after her. The climate and geology make it ideal for the cultivation of vines and this area has often been referred to as the "Garden of France". As a result, food and wine tasting are very important pastimes in the area. Tours itself is an important city with an enchanting old quarter as well as a thriving modern economy. With modern shops side by side with interesting historical buildings, Tours has something for everyone.

The members of the twinning group in Dollar are ordinary folk of all ages. We work hard to organise visits to La Ville aux Dames, and to receive the citizens of our twin town. We visit France and welcome French visitors in alternate years. We also meet in Dollar several times a year for social gatherings, sometimes with a French theme.

To participate in twinning, you don't have to speak French, nor do you have to be in a position to host French people, although we welcome offers for hosting individuals, couples or families from La Ville aux Dames.

Scottish Women's Rural Institute

The aims of the SWRI are to advance the education and training of women who live and work in rural areas and to promote home skills and good citizenship. We also aim to promote the preservation of Scotland’s traditions and its rural heritage. We offer useful information at meetings and events to encourage worthwhile recreational and leisure time occupations.

Locally we do this via monthly meetings in the Dollar Civic Centre and offer a varied and interesting programme of handicraft and housewifery demonstrations and talks.

Visitors and new members are always very welcome and you can be assured of a very entertaining evening.

Wardlaw House

Wardlaw House is an Abbeyfield House, opened in 1971. Abbeyfield-Scotland is a charity providing housing and support for older people. The Abbeyfield way of life is a balance of privacy and companionship in a family sized house where residents have their own bed-sitting room, furnished with their own treasured possessions, and have their own bathroom facilities. They lead their own lives, coming together for the main meals of the day, provided by the housekeeper. This helps to postpone or prevent the onset of high dependency. The Society in Dollar was initiated, and is mostly run by volunteers from all walks of life.

The community is encouraged to become involved, either by becoming a volunteer or by coming to the monthly Coffee Morning and befriending the residents.
