BRAG Enterprises Ltd
BRAG Enterprises Ltd

Charity registered in Scotland SC003517

BRAG Enterprise was developed as a result of the immense impact to the local economy of the pit closures after the miners’ strikes of the mid-80’s. In the 1980s the Benarty area, located in Central Fife, had one of the highest rates of unemployment in Fife and in Scotland. The area had relied upon the coal industry and although many of the local pits had closed in the sixties many men still travelled to work in the larger deep mines under the River Forth as well as to Rosyth Naval Dockyard who was also a large local employer. By the mid 80’s many of these sites along with their supply chain partners had simply disappeared. BRAG (Benarty Regeneration Action Group) Enterprise was founded by a group of community activists. The initiative was a direct response from the community to the specific social and economic impact of the demise of the coal industry on the communities of Benarty, Kelty, Cowdenbeath and Lochgelly. This area was collectively referred to as The Benarty Basin.
