A number of local Kelty and Kingseat organisations ranging from a bowling club to the local schools have benefited from the latest round of funding to be approved from the St Ninians Fund. With the exception of the annual Kelty gala and coal race all grants have been set at a maximum of one thousand pounds as the fund moves towards a close with the St Ninians Open Cast due to finish later this year. Local groups who gained from the latest round were:

 

Kelty and Blairadam Pipe Band (Pipes) – agreed in the sum of £1,000

Kelty and Blairadam Pipe Band (Drums) – agreed in the sum of £1,000.

Kelty Primary (Primary 2) – agreed in the sum of £700.

Kelty Primary (Primary 4) – agreed in the sum of £1,000.

Kelty Primary (Primary 5) – agreed in the sum of £600.

APPLICATIONS FOR GREATER THAN £1,000

The application for Kelty Coal Race was agreed in the sum of £3,500.

It was further agreed that the sum of £5,000 be set aside for a forthcoming application from Kelty Gala for this years annual event.

Local councillor Alex Rowley in a written report to Kelty Community Council said; “The trust has been used to finance a number of larger projects in Kelty and Kingseat but it is now almost at the end of its existence and that is why with the exception of the gala and coal race it has been restricted to grants of up to one thousand pounds. There will be another round of funding available at later stage in the year but as the coaling has almost stopped it will take a bit of time to build some funds up again. I am pleased that the local schools have been able to benefit in this round and I am actively looking for other funding that can help the schools increase their support facilities for learning, teaching and leisure”.
