LOCHGELLY is set to get a new nursery and the people of the town are invited to go along to a special drop-in session today (Wednesday) to see what is planned.

Parents, carers and members of the public are invited to the drop-in session, at Lochgelly Centre, to hear about the proposals for the new nursery in the town at the site of the former Lochgelly North School, off McGregor Avenue.

This build is part of Fife Council's plans to increase Early Learning and Childcare placements to 1140 hours for children from August 2020.

Said a Council spokesperson: "The new build will offer extra placements for 2 to 5 year-olds in the Lochgelly area.

"It is hoped that the new nursery could be built on the site of the former Lochgelly North School, which for many years was able to provide education for children with special needs.

"We are holding a drop-in session to present the work which has been done so far, where early concept proposals will be on display and Fife Council Staff will be on hand to explain and answer any questions".

The drop-in session will take place on Wednesday April 17 between 2:30pm and 6.30pm at the Lochgelly Centre, in Bank Street.
