LOCHGELLY High School pupils visited an MSP to tell him what’s wrong with their local area – and their ideas to make it better.

The S2 students visited Alex Rowley’s constituency office in the town and highlighted the issues they believe should be tackled. This ranged from animal welfare to litter in the streets and parks.

Pupils then updated the Mid Scotland and Fife Labour MSP about the improvement works they are doing in their school and in their local community.

Mr Rowley said: “I was delighted to meet this group from Lochgelly High School who were articulate and confident raising with me their concerns and ideas for the area.

“It is just great to see that young people very much care about the local area and have their views on what can be done to bring about improvement.”
