A community charity in Kirkcaldy has undergone a makeover and is set to re-launch under a new name this weekend.

From Friday Greener Kirkcaldy’s advice centre and shop will be known as the Greener Kirkcaldy High Street Hub.

But it’s not just new signage as the charity will also be unveiling a new look inside its premises. The centre, based in the town’s east end, has been refurbished with new internal and external paintwork as well as new shelving inside to accommodate new Eco, Fairtrade and energy saving products.

A spokeswoman for the charity, which has been working in Kirkcaldy since 2009, told the Press that Greener Kirkcaldy will continue to offer access to free and impartial energy advice from trained advisors.

But it has extended its opening hours so there are more opportunities for anyone to pop into the High Street Hub for a chat with an advisor or to contact the staff to arrange an energy advice visit at home.

Kitty O’Connor, development worker, said: “We are delighted with the changes we have made in launching the Greener Kirkcaldy High Street Hub. Our new sign is more prominent and eye catching so it draws people inside. Our hub is also a more comfortable space for energy advice discussions as well as chatting to people about all the other areas of work we do. Already we are noticing that the hub is busier as more people are dropping in to stock up on our Eco and Fairtrade products and refills.”

She added: “Whatever the reason for coming in we are happy to talk through what we do and what we offer.”
