The Fife Council consultation “Oor Bit Fife” which sought ideas from the general public has ended with four projects being shortlisted in the Lochgelly area.
Lochgelly residents are being asked to cast votes for one of the four projects to receive funding up to £10,000 at a public event to be held at Lochgelly Centre on Tuesday 15th November 2016 starting at 6pm until 8pm.
The four short-listed projects that were put forward by residents and Community Learning Development workers are:
Install main water supply to Grace Street Allotments (£10,000)
Grace St allotments currently have no running water and funding is being sought to connect the allotments with the main water supply.
Install more seating around the town, particularly in housing estates (£10,000)
The town is situated on a hill and with many elderly residents and residents with mobility issues, public benches should be re-installed throughout the town to give resting areas for residents.
Youth Club – Lochgelly needs a place for young people (£10,000)
With little activities available for youths, younger residents have requested a youth club that will provide a variety of activities which include access to computers, music, cooking, parties and educational activities, preferably available for at least two nights a week.
Community notice boards (free to be used by residents and community groups based in Lochgelly) (£4,000)
