VILLAGERS are being asked to give their views on what they want to see in the new Community Garden that is being developed at Ochilview.

Lumphinnans Community Garden is really beginning to take shape and the Tenants and Residents Association want locals to get involved.

Lumphinnans T&R Association will be meeting at the Community Garden site for their AGM on Wednesday April 24 at 6pm and everyone is welcome to attend.

Association secretary, Tracy McCann, said: “Last year we successfully applied for funding which enabled us to clear the former garage site, purchase tools and materials as well as a large porta-cabin for storage. "We’ve been lucky to have the support from Fife Housing Association, particularly from Helen Millar and Audrey Cameron. They really helped us a lot from the very beginning.

"We have an incredibly large space and we’re not short of ideas how to maximise it but what we do need is to hear the views and thoughts of local residents, after all this project is for the benefit and enjoyment of everyone in the village.”

Scottish Conservative Councillor, Darren Watt, has also been involved with the project from day one and said: “This group of local residents are very passionate about their village and want to create a safe enclosed space where families, friends and neighbours can play, relax and socialise. "They have achieved so much in a short space of time and this summer we’ll finally see their dreams become a reality. "I hope many residents can join us at the AGM so we can share our vision and hear their feedback”

The group were joined by Audrey Cameron and Councillor Watt as they litter picked the garden in preparation for the work ahead which will see a bright colourful feature developed.

But they want local views on what should go in the Community Garden.
