David Carson : FCA Director
My background is in education (language teaching). Coupar Angus is a good place to live, (my family grew up here), with a friendly and supportive community, and a number of groups working for change and betterment. FCA is for me a way of giving something back. I believe in the value of local action to make improvements, and that FCA is an effective means of achieving these aims. Besides which, it can be a lot of fun, and you meet interesting people!

Val Kidd : FCA Director
Val has been on FCA’s Board since 2011, she teaches English to foreigners and aims to integrate these new Scots in our community. She also gathers local stories and events for the town’s monthly magazine CANdo. You’ll recognise Val’s knitted bike – her keen group of ‘yarnstormers’ meet socially to show each other new and old skills with yarn, sometimes for good causes or just to brighten up Coupar Angus.

Wendy McCombes : FCA Director
I am a long term resident of Coupar Angus and ran, for many years, the dental practice in the town. I have been a Director of Forward Coupar Angus since 2012. I have been leading the growing and cooking projects and running the monthly markets since they were set up in 2014. I am really delighted that the community shop and carbon reduction centre based in the High Street Store are turning out to be a success. My focus now is to provide as many opportunities for townspeople of all ages. To this end my FCA projects are focussing on education and training and giving volunteering and employment opportunities to people in the town.
Adrianne Mitchell : FCA Director
My name is Adrianne, I am 33yrs old. I have lived in Coupar Angus for fifteen years now and have been a local business owner for the past four of them. I like helping others and enjoy seeing improvement. My profession enables me to speak to many people from the town on a daily basis, I see this as a great communication channel and it allows me to have a general understanding of the local opinions.
