Ben Ledi View

Callander Community Newspaper



Information for contributors

Unlike commercial papers, we rely on the community to provide the paper's content: if we don't cover something it's usually because we haven't been informed about it. Which brings us neatly back to what Ken wrote all those years ago: 'Success or failure depends on your involvement...' If you want us to cover something that you think would be of interest to others in the town, get in touch, or better still, write a piece yourself and send it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., with your name and address (we won’t publish your address); and if you feel the paper ignores your section of the community, again, let us know. Send us an email. We have a letters section in every issue waiting to be filled.

We are all part of Callander - and this is our community's newspaper.

The Ben Ledi View is an independent voice for residents and organisations in Callander. It is not affiliated to the local Community Council or Development Trust and seeks to reflect the views of all Callander's residents.

If you have an idea for a regular column, or a one-off article or want to send in a letter or announcement, then please take note of the editorial deadline dates below and submit your idea or piece by that date, by emailing it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

It helps if you put the name of your article in the title of your email.

If you are unable to email us then take your article to the Callander Library in South Church St.

Please note: if you wish to put a personal message in the BLV, we need your name, address and phone number (we will only print your name) with your message. There is a small charge  (£5) which must be paid in advance, so please leave a cheque with your message at the library or send a cheque to the McLaren Community Centre, Mollands Rd, Callander FK17 8JP (cheques payable to the Ben Ledi View Community Newspaper SCIO). Thank you.
