Change Works in Burntisland officially opened its doors at the launch of the new hub at 183 High Street by Provost of Fife, Councillor Jim Leishman recently. Burntisland residents and businesses can drop in to the Change Works in Burntisland hub for advice and support on energy efficiency and practical ways to cut heating and electricity costs. 

Jo Hobbett, Senior Project Officer of Change Works in Burntisland, said, “We’re delighted to be open and welcome people into the hub. We’re looking forward to working together with the community in Burntisland to avoid wasting energy and money. Our friendly team is on hand to provide advice to help local people save money on their electricity and gas bills and improve the warmth of homes and businesses. Drop in to find out how we could help you!” 

Burntisland was chosen as the location for this project as a result of the ideas and responses gathered from the community to help create the recent Community Action Plan and Burntisland Energy Masterplan. 

Provost of Fife, Councillor Jim Leishman said, “I’m really pleased to launch Change Works in Burntisland. This will be a great resource for local residents and businesses, and I would encourage everyone to drop in to speak to the team and find out more about saving energy in Burntisland.”
