    Workshops have been organised by the Democratic Society, Strathclyde University, and Fife Council to provide an opportunity for local people and stakeholders to come together and make recommendations on the priorities for the Cowdenbeath Area and the future development of Lochore Meadows Country Park.

    This event is free to attend, with vouchers offered for attendance (£40 for each workshop attended). There will also be tea/coffee and either breakfast or lunch offered prior to the workshop, depending on the session you select.

    Please note: Participants must attend one session of each workshop. All workshops will take place at the Willie Clarke Visitor Centre, Lochore Meadows Country Park.

    Date/times below:

    Idea Generation Workshop - Participants will be asked to generate ideas for the development of Lochore Meadows Country Park. The group wants to generate as many different ideas as possible, big and small, to help improve the park. Some key areas for consideration will be the playpark, nature areas, and events.
