Volunteering all year-round to enhance the environment of Lochgelly
The Community Action Plan has been informed by extensive community engagement carried out over a six-month period from March – August 2015.
Growing in Lochgelly sought funding of £1500 through the Lochgelly CAP project and was voted worthy of the funds by residents voting on projects to support.
