CARDENDEN'S 4th Fife Scouts are continuing to fight back after the body blow of losing their hall to a fire earlier this year.

After enjoying their first camp at Nine Acres since the blaze, a few weeks ago, a very successful coffee morning took place at the weekend as part of the ongoing fundraising campaign by the 4th Fife to replace the hall that was burnt down earlier this year.

Cowdenbeath Area Committee convener, Cllr Linda Erskine, is working with the many locals in the Cardenden area to help the Scouts raise the funds and said the coffee morning at Achterderran Church Hall had been a great success.

The Labour councillor was joined on the day by Alex Rowley MSP, who praised the hard work and dedication of local people.

Mr Rowley said: “What strikes me about this campaign is that there are people of all ages involved, there are lots of young scouts, and it is like the whole community is getting behind them which is great.

"And the home made baking on Saturday was just amazing!”

A whole list of fundraisers are set to take place over the coming weeks as the bid to replace the Cardenden Road hall continues at a pace.

Further fundraising events are being run throughout the year and the Scouts will welcome all support and hope more people will get involved.
