What Does Your community Council Do?
Community Councils are the most local tier of statutory representation in Scotland. They bridge the gap between local authorities and communities, and help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent.
The primary purpose of Kelty Community Council is to ascertain and express the views of the community to the local authority and other public bodies.
The Community Council may also get involved in a wide range of other activities including fundraising, organising community events, undertaking environmental and educational projects and much more.
There are currently around 1200 Community Councils in Scotland, all of which are composed of elected volunteers from the community.
The Lindsay Colliery Memorial Service.
Kelty Community Council will be holding a memorial service for the 60th anniversary of the Lindsay Colliery Disaster. On the 14th of December 1957 nine men lost their lives and thirty were injured in an underground explosion. The organisers of the event would like to invite ex-miners, who worked in the Lindsay Pit and have moved away or did not live in Kelty, to join with the local community in this service of remembrance. The service will be held at 7pm on 15th December 2017 at Kelty Community Centre. It would help the organisers in planning the service, if you could let us know if you will be attending, however, this is not essential. The Community Council can be contacted at email@example.com or 01383 831411
