Without our supporters, there would be no Wee Vine. They offer support in a variety of ways. All essential.

Firstly, our financial supporters.  Printing and other costs are totally met through the support of a number of local businesses. Currently, these are (in alphabetical order):

Brian Reynolds Carpentry

Cameron Skinner, Skinner of Kippen

Central Auto Repairs (Glengyle)

Cliff Hewett – eMusic Tutor

Fallen Brewing Company

Fusion Flowers Magazine

GCR Financial Planning

John Coubrough & Son, Joiners &Funeral Directors

Kappa Computer

McNicolls Country Store

Raymond Alexander Electrical

Rhubarb Lime

Stephen Paul Associates

The Cross Keys

The Inn at Kippen

Each of our financial supporters is entitled to use the magazine to publicise forthcoming events, or significant awards obtained. Anyone who would like to offer support in this way, can do so by contacting us at

Secondly many thanks to those who have supported this issue by contributing articles. The Wee Vine is for Kippen, about Kippen and by Kippen. We would like to know about events as they happen, and also those which are planned. Also, organisations, clubs and their programmes and activities. Plus comments, queries, photos and anything else that takes your fancy.

“Letters to the editor” on paper or electronically are welcome from all.

Also, we would like to thank the various outlets who support us by selling copies of The Wee Vine – McNicolls, Rhubarb Lime, The Woodhouse and the Inn at Kippen.

And finally, those who support by offering help in many ways, such as the delivery of the magazine round the village by June Waley and her team.

We would like anyone able to deliver to outlying areas and farms to contact us.
