New volunteers, involved in a group set up to promote Glenrothes as a go to destination, are calling on townsfolk to get behind their efforts to put the town back on the map.

Go Glenrothes project volunteers are to host a public meeting for early in the new year and are urging the public to come along and tell them what they want to see happening within the town and its adjoining communities.

The organisation, which has £50,000 of initial Fife Council backing, are aiming to match that with further funding to help give the town a presence on social media and create an events strategy for Glenrothes.

And they hope to build on two exciting events already planned for Glenrothes – science and comedy festivals.

The initial launch of the Go Glenrothes campaign has suffered from a number of setbacks including the resignation last month of its chairman and treasurer, but has since recruited a new steering committee that say they are fully committed to making the initiative a success for the town.

“We now have a social media presence which we are building up nicely and we want that to become the first port of call for people wanting to know what events and attractions are taking place here in Glenrothes,” explained Dan Rous, Go Glenrothes secretary.

“Now we want as many people as possible to get involved and help make Go a success.”

The meeting takes place on Tuesday, January 19 at at the Lomond Centre, starting at 6pm.
