    Sell them on a website- for all us ex-L’gellyians?

      That’s a good idea, I’ll let the council know. They might be limited in numbers but we can try and secure a few extra and send them out to any ex-L’gellyians that want them. If we manage to get any extra I’ll get in touch.

        Great- I would love to walk around London and Singapore with that bag. What about badges?

          I don’t think they have thought about badges. I’ve been in touch with the council today to see if we can get any extra bags to send out so I am just waiting for a reply.

          I’ll let you know as soon as I hear something 😉

    remember we already have a full range of i”heart” lochgelly mugs, tshirts, keyrings etc. available in the shop. We could easily supply domed badges.
