THE entrance to Bowhill Centre is taking on a new look thanks to work being carried out by Colin Cameron.

The historic Fife Council building is certainly having some lovely features added thanks to the work carried out by the man who studied at Fife College.

The Management Committee of the Centre have had the foyer revamped. There has been some fine artwork, general painting, new sofas soft furniture and a special piece of art work commissioned by Colin.

Said Vi Penman: "We wanted to capture a bit of the history of the mining area and more-so this was Colin’s brief".

Born in Kirkcaldy, but now living in Dunfermline, he studied art at Fife College for three years.

Said Colin: "My favourite artists are Picasso and Matisse and I have an interest in cubism.

"I complete commissions, anything from portraits to landscapes to popular art.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed this commission as I grew up in Fife and have an understanding of its origins as a mining community.

"It was good to demonstrate that through this painting and provide these images for future generations to come".

Added Vi of the management committee: "We are more than happy with the finished results for these really make a difference to the entrance to the Centre."

The Centre has a number of facilities including the Main Hall which is a perfect space to hold functions likes a wedding or parties or large public meetings and so much more.

This has also been recently decorated and a new Bar installed.

The Cardenden Boxing Club has a gym at the Centre and a number of excellent young fighters are involved in training sessions several times a week.

It is a real community hub and currently the 4th Fife Scouts use it as a base after their hall was damaged by fire.

If anyone is interested in using the facilities call into the Centre for more information or call 01593 583471.
