People who care about Methil and Methilhill are invited to have their say in shaping the area’s future for the next five years.

The Coalfields Regeneration Trust, a charity committed to improving the quality of life in former coalfield communities, is inviting residents to discuss their hopes at a public meeting on Wednesday, June 17.

The event is due to be held in Methilhill British Legion in Main Street, Methilhill, from 6.30pm–7.30pm.

Pauline Grandison, the Coalfields Regeneration Trust’s team leader for community action, said: “We know local people and organisations have a real passion for the area.

“This is a great opportunity for them to channel their enthusiasm for Methil and Methilhill into having their say in developing a five-year action plan for their community.

“There is an added incentive for locally constituted groups who will also find out how to apply for funding from the Participatory Budget, which the Coalfields Regeneration Trust will provide as part of this programme.

“This is a golden chance to ensure local people and organisations set the priorities for how the area develops over the next five years, and the CRT looks forward to welcoming as many residents and groups as possible to the meeting.”
