THE visit to the Cowdenbeath NCB Workshops by former employees, many who started apprenticeships at Church Street, will go ahead this Thursday.

It had been planned for last Friday but had to be postponed but it will now take place starting at 1pm on Thursday.

Owners of what is now Thistle Industrial Estate, In-site Property Solutions, have confirmed to organiser of the visit, Iain Chalmers, that they were happy to proceed with it on July 30, with the first walkaround to start at 1pm.

The tours will be completed in groups of six, to comply with social distancing guidelines and each visit will last 30 minutes.

Said Iain: "We have 42 people, mostly former apprentices who started their working life at the Church Street site, wanting to go to say goodbye to the Workshops before these are demolished

"It is an historic part of the town and it will be good to have this visit before part of Cowdenbeath's industrial history disappears."

The demolition work is expected to start in the autumn.
