Unfortunately, certainly for me, this is will be my final post as a Community Councillor, certain issues have happened within the Community Council that I do not wish associated with, so with a heavy heart I have resigned.
I’d like to thank those who have visited and enjoyed this website, I am very proud how it has developed and shown Lochgelly in a positive light.
George Elder for Lochgelly.
