A CONCERT to help an initiative aiming to bring mining memorabilia to Central Fife tuned in with over £700 at the weekend.

The event – for Save the Cage – took place at the Lochore Miners' institute on Saturday afternoon with an array of musical talents taking part.

Among those performing were Ray Kelly and her Bad Boys, Kinrick, The Hershaws, Christine Kyle, Hokey Pokey, Fiona Forbes, Black Sails and Sairbanes.

Iain Chalmers, from Save the Cage, said the concert was a great success.

"It was a good event and everyone who was there enjoyed themselves," he said. "There were nine bands. All local to Fife. We raised over £700 between tickets, the raffle and two prints which were donated.

"A special thanks goes to George Mackie who organised it for us. He has now done a few of these and every one has been a success."

The Save the Cage project plans to create a mining heritage "theme park" at Lochore Meadows where artefacts will be installed close to the Mary Pit Head.
