WEST FIFE property consultants, Hardies, are "delighted" to have participated in the construction of the new EATS Rosyth Community Hub. 

The company, which has offices in Dunfermline, provided pre and post-contract quantity surveying services and building surveying services to the charity that focuses on growing and sharing food, reducing waste, helping the environment, and improving food education. 

Graham Rolfe, Hardies Property & Construction Consultants partner, said: “We were delighted to have been involved as Quantity Surveyor for EATS Rosyth.

“The former Clydesdale Bank building had lain empty for some years, and it is great to see it brought back to life and into community use.

"The vision and work undertaken by the charity and its volunteers to support the local Rosyth community is inspiring.”

Consisting of the Community Garden, Community Hub and Centenary Orchard, EATS is a project encouraging local people to get involved in making the town a better place.

The project was initiated by Rosyth Community Council and is delivered through Rosyth Community Projects to demonstrate how to transform previously unimaginative, unappealing green spaces into productive growing areas which bring all sorts of benefits to the community while inspiring others.

EATS Rosyth purchased the former Clydesdale Bank building on Queensferry Road in Rosyth due to a need for larger premises due to demand in the local area.

The hub officially opened on May 30 this year, after years of hard work. The bigger space has allowed them to offer a range of services to the community.

Included in the hub is a surplus food-sharing space, two small meeting rooms, a board meeting room, a hot desk area and an industrial kitchen, all available to rent out to groups and individuals.

Also on site is The Living Room Cafe, complete with a large seating area, a kid's play corner and customer toilets, including a large accessible toilet with a shower.
