Burntisland expects dog owners to take their wee bags home

“Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are having to introduce changes to our waste and recycling services over the coming weeks depending on staffing levels and the government guidance.

“Like the rest of the country, the council is operating in emergency mode. Please help us by only contacting the council in an emergency. Our most critical public services are still being delivered in extremely challenging circumstances.

“We thank you for not contacting us about bin issues at this time, including:

missed bins
damaged bins
requesting bin to be removed
general bin enquiries

“On this page you can find out about the current service arrangements (we update this information regularly).”

Burntisland Food Shop News


NOTE This was posted 3 days ago on https://www.facebook.com/uSaveBurntisland things may have changed…

Burntisland’s various food retailers are doing a fabulous job of staying open and doing their best to get supplies and also adapting to the latest guidance on staying safe.

This is important for shoppers and ESPECIALLY staff.

You may only visit shops for a few minutes, but staff are present for HOURS.

If you have symptoms DON’T GO OUT.

Shops are restricting the number of people in at one time, RESPECT THIS – even if YOU think this is INCONVENIENT, you are NOT special.

When queuing outside maintain the recommended TWO METRES apart.

If you don’t already, make a list to reduce the chances of needing to go back to a shop because you have forgotten something.

Use contactless rather than cash if you can.

Can you get offer to get messages for a neighbour?

Burntisland School Offers More Places

Thursday 26th March 2020 09:40

“Dear Parents/Carers,

“Following further guidance from Fife Council Education and Children’s services, we are now extending the offer of placements at Fife council Activity centres to those parents\carers who fall into category 2 as outlined below.

“Category 2 – All other Health and Care workers, and wider public sector workers providing emergency/critical welfare services (e.g. Fire, Police, Prisons, Social Workers, etc.), as well as those supporting our Critical National Infrastructure, without whom serious damage to the welfare of the people of Scotland could be caused.

“Please note that places are only offered to children where both parents fall into the category 1/2 or single parents who also fall into this category and if no other alternative childcare is available.

“Those who have already submitted an application which falls into this category will be contacted. There may also be some parents\carers who have been redeployed and now fall into these categories who may wish to apply.

“All applicants will be contacted to advise whether or not their child\children have a place.”

Kind Regards,
Julie Anderson

Burntisland’s Over 70s Being Looked After

One of Burntisland’s oldest ‘institutions’ is looking after the town’s oldest people. Burntisland Over 70s committee has been organising a Christmas “treat” for over 100 years. These days it’s a lunch, entertainment and a bag to take home.

Now, the Over 70s committee has already started shopping for and delivering to people over 70s. The Over 70s is trusted in the town and is known to the people they are aiming to deliver to.

Committee member Morag Douglas is owner of one of Burntisland’s oldest buildings, the Star Tavern, and says “we are taking calls on the Star number 01592 871313 between 10 and 12 in the morning and then shopping and delivering in the afternoon.

“We have advertised on Facebook and have something going in the Fife Free Press on Thursday. We also have quite a few volunteers lined up for when demand increases and are setting up a card payment facility.”

She is working with BEAT to “coordinate and not overlap”.
