The new Kerbside Recycling Service

In September 2012 Angus Council began a trial with 5,200 households in Arbroath, Carnoustie and selected rural areas to test a new recycling service. This enabled households taking part to recycle more materials, as easily as possible including food waste.

The trial proved successful and will be rolled out out as the NEW Kerbside Recycling Service to all but the most rural areas of Angus beginning in March 2014. Before each phase of the new service roll-out begins we will write to householders with further information.

Tealing is include in phase 2 and should begin in June.

Friday 16th May 20143pm – 8pm


Tealing Solar Park Ltd has identified the potential for a Solar Park on land atthe former Tealing Airfield, located to the south west of Tealing. The scheme is being developed in partnership with the landowner, Mr. Charles Simmers, and experienced Solar Park developers Renewable Energy Projects Ltd and a UK subsidiary of IZEN Energy Systems NV, Green Ventures. The current proposal is for a 30MW array of Solar PV panels across the southern half of the airfield, extending from the electrical substation to the poultry sheds and down past Muir of Pert. The development will provide enough electricity for over 7,000 homes annually. A public exhibition will be held on Friday 16th of May at Tealing Hall, Hall Road, Inveraldie. The drop-in event will run from 3pm to 8pm and will provide details about the proposed scheme and present findings from the environmental studies that have been carried out by Green Cat Renewables Ltd, who have been appointed by the developer to submit a full planning application in late May 2014. The event represents an opportunity for you to find out more about the scheme, to ask any questions that you may have and express your views on the proposals.

All are welcome.                               Green Cat Renewables Ltd.


Sunday 27th April 2014         The waste Ground action day.

The Hall Committee are in the final stages of taking ownership of the Hall and surrounding ground from Angus Council. The ground at the rear of the hall had been used for fly tipping and for burning rubbish for the last 40 years.  The Hall committee had a vision of turning this area into a community asset and over the last year have been working towards improving this area.

Phase 1 was completed at the end of 2013 and comprised of removing 40 years dumped material and laying paving to provide safe access from emergency exits. Funding of £3,000 was obtained from Angus Environmental Trust to carry out this work.  At the same time we have been running a communication exercise with locals in Inveraldie to change behaviour in regard to dumping and burning rubbish in the area.

Phase 2 comprised of cleaning up and landscaping the immediate area around the hall. To help foster a spirit of pride and ownership in the community we decided to have an action day and sought out local volunteers to carry out the work. This is how the day worked out.

 The forecast was for rain and the action day required dry weather, however the rain stayed off and 21 willing and hard working volunteers turned up.

Ron Stewart, Jim Davie, Vikki, Bill and Eric Morrison, Nicki Donaldson, Shelia and Norman Cooper, Joyce and Andrew Barr, Eileen and Alex Strang, Neil Dewar, Harold Haggart, Carole and Alan Slade, Lindsay Hay, Yolanda Archibald, Iris Coghill, Mary & Graham Campbell

The day was a great success; apart from the amount of work completed there was a real feeling of satisfaction and camaraderie in Tealing working together for the community.    

We ran out of time to complete all the tasks. We plan to complete these unfinished jobs on Sunday 11th May.  Any new volunteers would be welcomed.

Thanks to all involved, special thanks to Ron Stewart for providing equipment for the clean-up and to Alex Strang for the removal of a very large volume of dumped material.

18 Aug 2013 Generous Donation of World War 2 WAAF Jacket by Mrs Mabel Langlands

Tealing Community Council Chairman, Graeme Reoch, was delighted to accept the generous donation of Mrs Mabel Langland's WAAF jacket at a small ceremony with afternoon tea in Tealing Hall on Sunday 18 August.

Mrs Langlands, now a sprightly 93 years of age, was wearing the jacket in May 1942 when she plotted the arrival at Tealing Airfield of the Russian Goverment Minister, Molotov, who was on his way to London to meet Winston Churchill to sign the Anglo-Russian Peace Treaty. Part of Tealing's history has come home and arrangements are being made to preserve and display the jacket in Tealing Hall.

Volunteer Roll of Honour

Sunday 20 May 2012, Tealing Airfield Memorial unveiled!  Photo Gallery

Almost 100 people came along on Sunday 20 May to see the Airfields of Britain Conservation Trust (ABCT) unveil a permanent granite memorial in memory of those who served at the airfield during WW2. Community Council Chairman, Graeme Reoch, welcomed everyone and then Steven Burke read from Jim McFarlane of Todhill's happy childhood memories of the aerodrome, which were both funny and very touching - moving some of those present to tears.

It was a happy occasion though for many reasons. We were honoured to have two very special guests, WAAFs Mabel Langlands and Margaret Erskine who were both based at Tealing Airfield. Mabel was in the Operations Room and actually plotted Molotov's landing on 20 May 1942! Both ladies are 90 years old and were delighted to participate in the event. We thank them both and their families for coming along.

Ken Bannerman, Director General of ABCT unveiled the memorial, followed by Dr Ted Luscombe, retired Bishop of Brechin and Kirkton of Tealing resident, who did a very moving dedication. We were also honoured by a flyover and salute from pilots Drew Dudgeon and Jim Watt of Tayside Aviation flying from Riverside Dundee Airport.

Piper Ross Henderson of Fintry Pipe Band then lead everyone back inside for a cuppa. The conversation and memories flowed until, after more than 60 years, the Tealing Airfield bell rang out in Angus again. It had been brought to the hall for the day by Dougal and Elma Barrie, whose Auntie Bebe (previously of Moatmill) preserved it after the war. Thanks to everyone who made it such an enjoyable and memorable day!
