A NEW Community Lunch initiative to promote better social inclusion and information was launched in Lochgelly on Friday in the Salvation Army Hall.

The Lo’gelly Lunches project offers everyone the opportunity for people to come in and have something to eat, the lunch will consist of soup and sandwiches and there will be a cake or two on offer as well.

Apart from the food there is also the opportunity to meet with others in a relaxed social setting and enjoy some company.

Organised and run by a group of volunteers there was soup and sandwiches served on Friday alongside a chat and a warm welcome. There was even a little something to take away if you wanted to.

Group member Councillor Linda Erskine said: “What an absolutely great start to the project and a huge thanks to everyone who came along for their lunch! "We hope people enjoyed the relaxed and friendly atmosphere and urge people make it a regular date and come in often!”

Linzi from the job club was on hand offering support to people who required it as well as some of the local housing officers from Ore Valley HA and Fife Council who were there to support the project and help with any enquiries that people may have had.

The project is open again this Friday and every Friday thereafter in the Salvation Army Hall from 11am until 1pm.
