Central Fife communities have been recognised by Beautiful Fife for their commitment to enhance local environments.

Beautiful Fife have announced the winners of their awards at a special ceremony that was held on 6th September 2017 which has seen Central Fife communities and environmental groups recognised for their environmental improvement projects.

Crossgates received a Gold medal, Cowdenbeath gained a silver medal, Kelty a Silver Gilt medal, and Lochgelly won a Silver medal thanks to the hard work of volunteers from the environmental group ‘Growing in Lochgelly‘ with support from Lochgelly residents.

Two Growing in Lochgelly volunteers, Shona McPherson (chairperson) and George Kinnell (treasurer) accepted the Silver Award on behalf of the town at the Beautiful Fife awards ceremony.

Growing in Lochgelly treasurer George Kinnell says:

“Growing in Lochgelly would like to thank everyone involved in achieving this Award, especially the towns-folk for their respect and support.”

Growing in Lochgelly was one of three groups across Fife that were shortlisted for a special Project Award but narrowly missed out, with the award going to the East Wemyss Den.

Annabelle Ewing, MSP for the Cowdenbeath constituency, has congratulated all those from her constituency who were successful in securing awards and medals at the Beautiful Fife Awards.

Ms Ewing said:

“I am delighted to note that it was another successful evening for local communities at the Beautiful Scotland and Beautiful Fife Awards. All the various local committees do a fantastic job and put in a huge amount of effort to enhance the visual environment of their local communities.

In the local contest, it was great to see Crossgates getting a Gold Medal, Kelty a Silver Gilt Medal, and Silver Medals for Cowdenbeath and Lochgelly. I want to give the team from Growing in Lochgelly special praise; they have only been going for just over a year and have already upgraded last year’s bronze to a silver.”

The Silver awarded to Lochgelly is in recognition that the work carried out demonstrates exceptionally high standards, in particular, demonstrating good sustainable standards and the potential to progress to Silver Gilt award in the future.

Ms Ewing added:

“A massive well done to everyone involved and please keep up the good work. You have done us all proud.”
