Pupils from Lochgelly South Primary School showed their community spirit by helping local group Growing in Lochgelly and Lochgelly Fire Station maintain the four planters outside the fire station on Friday (3rd June 2016).

Primary Seven pupils showed up at the Fire Station with geraniums to compliment the plants sourced by Growing in Lochgelly.

Both groups took a hands on approach working with staff from Lochgelly Fire Station and quickly restored the four planters with a variety of plants.

Chairperson for Growing in Lochgelly, Wendy Miller says

The kids have done a fantastic job! The staff from the school and from the fire station has been very supportive with everyone working really hard. The planters look great which is thanks to everyone that got involved.

Bringing the planters up to standard was quickly achieved which gave time for the pupils to work with the firemen in using their hoses and learn more about how the fire equipment functions.

Pupils were given a shot to help water the bushes outside the fire station before returning back to school.

    Great to see the kids involved. Lochgelly looking a lot nicer with all the planting. Any idea as to when the Fife Council tubs are going to be filled?

    We’re almost at midsummer so Fife Council have left it a bit late. What’s Lochgelly Community Council doing?

    I don’t think L/gelly Community Council are doing anything. Noticed today, that Halbeath finally have their Council planters filled. L/gelly Council planters still filled with weeds. Would be quicker if they just let the public go and plant something in them, or better still, get rid of them and plant a nice tree or a few flowering bushes.

    Dead right Hazel. It’s shameful really. L/gelly Community Council go around acting very important but do f’ all. No one goes to their meetings, half the members don’t even turn up and now they’re off on holiday for 3 months. What a shower!
