Together Levenmouth is a project that is run by local charity Brag Enterprises. We started running events with our first being a 10k race on Leven beach and have since held drive-in movies, a car festival, silent disco, monthly artisan markets and we also run the community lottery. We were also tasked with helping to regenerate the High St and so on April 2nd 2022, we opened the Together Levenmouth Hub. This comprises 2 escape rooms, 2 crazy golf courses, a gift shop, party room and our lovely rustic café!
All profits from the Together Levenmouth project go back into the community.
Why did we decide on this area and what do we hope to achieve? Well, one of the main reasons was that it is an area of high unemployment and our research showed that youngsters felt there wasn’t much of a future for them in their home towns. Brag Enterprises got a long-term mortgage on a building (Thomson House, Methil) that we knew would provide affordable office space for small local business and from there, we have a team of staff that help those furthest from the job market, back into work. Not only that but we try to employ ourselves directly from the Levenmouth area too. The Hub was designed to combat the problem of not enough footfall in most High Streets these days, for retailers to want prime space and not enough in the high St anymore that makes shoppers want to spend time there! As the Hub is a centre for entertainment, this will draw the footfall needed to address this problem and attract other businesses in the future.
Our dedicated TL team are committed to making Levenmouth an amazing destination for tourists, driving economic growth whilst creating a circular economy for the area and using the profits to further help the youth in the area realise their potential.
