A LITTLE bit of Cowdenbeath Rotary Club history's was written on Thursday when the club recruited its first ever corporate member.

Lochgelly High School is the first 'corporate' recruit and rector Debbie Aitken was at the meeting to see the school inducted.

Club president, Yolanda Hilton, said: "The difference between individual members and corporate membership is that it is not one person that attends meetings it can be one of several people.

"It is brilliant to have Lochgelly High joining us as we have worked closely with LHS on a number of items ranging from the Rotary Youth Leadership Award camps to photographer and writer awards along with the Polar Academy experience and recent Inuit visitors .

"We hope that other corporate members will follow in the footsteps of the school."

LHS rector Debbie said: "I know how closely and effectively the rotary club and school work and I think this opportunity will provide the chance to further strengthen the links.

"Coming from Kelty I know how Cowdenbeath Rotary Club works so hard in the community and I would like us to help the club in any way we can with their many projects."

Schools, businesses, or local organisations can become corporate members of Cowdenbeath Rotary Club and information about the idea can be obtained from secretary@cowdenbeathrotary.org
