A NEW video encouraging people in the Cowdenbeath area to get involved in the future of their community is now online.

The three minute film showcases local people talking about their community and includes footage of the "Meedies", Kelty and Cowdenbeath High Street.

The video hears Lochore Meadows Park Manager Ian Laing talking about the new features the park has and hopes to get and also to Carol Gilmour, of K ART which has led the way to street art making a real difference to the look of the village.

There are also items on Auchterderran Church Drop-in project which offers a lot of advice to the public on a range of topics while enjoying a blether and a cuppa.

The changing face of Cowdenbeath High Street is also strongly featured as work has progressed well in recent months as part of a £600,000+ project of improvements.

Fife Council's Community Manager for Cowdenbeath Kevin Sayer explains: "Filming the video has been a great way of getting local people involved in celebrating and talking about all the amazing things going on in the Cowdenbeath area.

"And the best bit is that a lot of what's highlighted in the video has come about through community involvement and the council working together with local people on their priorities.

"We want to build on that positive partnership in Cowdenbeath and continue to inspire local people to take an active part in the future of their community."

Convener of the council's Cowdenbeath Area Committee, Cllr Linda Erskine added: "I hope lots of people watch this and share on social media in a bid to involve others and celebrate what makes our Cowdenbeath area so special."
