Kelty learning centre must stay

The learning centre at the Moray Institute in Kelty is under threat from closure following an announcement from the Adam Smith College that they wish to pull out. The college say the greatest cost to them is the room hire which they pay Fife Council for.

I have met with Fife Council’s executive director for housing and communities and made the case that the council also has a responsibility for adult education and for contributing to the positive aspects of the community and as such should not be the main barrier for this centre continuing.

Gordon brown visited the centre and met with some of the people who are campaigning to keep the centre open. We will continue to make the case for the college and council working together to keep our learning centre in Kelty.
