This post is a little off topic, but I hope you don’t mind me indulging myself a little because what I’m about to share is rapidly turning into something of an ongoing passion for me. If you live in Fife and love music and the arts, then you may find it of special relevance too.
Here in Dunfermline we have a rather special building… the old Fire Station. However, in recent years it has fallen into disrepair and neglect. As part of the founding team of a local Dunfermline charity initiative called the Firestation Creative, we have a determined vision to redeem the property, with a contemporary design, put it to good use and it give back to the community as an arts and music centre of excellence which becomes an ongoing thriving hub of local functional creativity.
Today I am pleased to report good news because Fife Council have agreed to take the property off the market while we spearhead the drive to secure business funding for the project so that work can begin in progress.
So far it’s been every encouraging to have the support of luminaries such as the Lord Provost of Fife, Jim Leishman and John Park MSP (see photo of Jim, John and I below) but what would be even better would be to have your support too.
