PLANS are afoot by Crossgates and Mossgreen Community Council to ensure that this Christmas things are shining in the village.

The April meeting heard that sources of funding were key to make this year spectacular.

It was one of many items that were discussed at the Council’s monthly meeting held on Monday April 9 included the new senior citizens treat, the church bell and bus services in the village.

The meeting heard how the first senior citizens Christmas treat is to held on Thursday November 29 from 1pm until 6pm.

Local senior citizens will be treated to a meal and entertainment and transport will be organised for those who require it.

Application details should be placed in containers in the 'Premier' shops in Mossgreen and Main Street.

Funding is currently being sought by the community council to support the restoration of the Mossgreen Church Bell, a project of historical significance.

The community council have expressed their disappointment at the proposed charges at the Halbeath Park and Ride facility where a £1 charge for parking is to be made by Fife Council.

The community council felt disappointed that 'they were not consulted in any respect regarding this decision'.

The community council are currently investigating potential sources of funds for the installation of Christmas lights for the village.

It is hoped by them the acquisition of such lighting will provide a welcome, festive attraction. All donations will be welcomed by the organisation.

A representative from Bay Travel attended the meeting regarding the servicing for the residents at Mossgreen with a regular bus service.

The issue is still under consultation and residents are reminded of the Dial A Ride service which is available for those who find accessing public transport difficult.

The next meeting of Crossgates and Mossgreen Community Council will take place on Monday May 14 at 7pm in the Community Centre. All are welcome.
