COWDENBEATH community activist Alex Haddow was disappointed when the town's gala had to cancelled in June due to the coronavirus crisis, because it was to be his last with him being involved in organising the event.

But on Saturday he had his own mini parade to thank him on behalf of the community for his contribution to Cowdenbeath Civic Week from 1978-2020.

The Civic Week Committee made a special visit to his house with a decorated float arriving outside his door.

The Civic Week Committee's Claire Morgan said: "Thanks again to Alex for his hard work over the years and we look forward to seeing you on the CACA float at Cowdenbeath Children's Gala 2021!"

Derek Johnstone caught up with the activities on Saturday morning!
