The doors to Panther’s, one of Kirkcaldy’s best-known pubs, opened 35 years ago…

Heids and Herts Scotland was established in June 2021 to create, inspire and promote social connection in the Howe of Fife through community arts projects.

Ian Harrower, who chairs the charity, said: “The theme for Mental Health Awareness Week this year is loneliness which affects the mental health of millions of people across the UK.

“The longer we feel lonely, the more at risk we are for mental health issues such as low mood and anxiety, which can negatively affect mental health.”

The community radio station was built around raising awareness of the issue and helping communities reconnect.

Liam Russell has joined the team as Station Project and Compliance Manager.

Originally from Auchtermuchty, he will manage Haiver FM’s programming from the studio housed inside Burnturk Jubilee Hall in Burnturk’s Coaltown.

He recently completed an Honors BA in Media Production from the University of Sunderland.
