About Us

Volunteering all year-round to enhance the environment of Lochgelly
Lochgelly based voluntary Environment Action Group

Growing in Lochgelly was set-up in response to the priorities for action identified through the Lochgelly Community Action Plan completed in 2015.

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.

The project won Lochgelly the Bronze Beautiful Fife award in 2016, the first time ever.
