New Cycle Project for Burntisland @CentreToll

Yvonne Crombie, manager of the Toll Community Centre, is starting a new venture to encourage people to cycle.

The initial plan is to get unwanted bikes, service them and find new owners.

Some will be sold to raise money for tools and spares. Others will become part of a ‘pool’ to be lent out.

The intention is to offer basic maintenance sessions – especially for parents and children.

Already several people have offered to help.

If you have unwanted bikes, parts or tools, the Toll will be happy to take them after the 7th.

All 40 online.

The Queen has recognised another resident for her initiative “The Daily Mile” which is spreading.

Coastal Rowing Club for Burntisland? Public Meeting Jan 30th

Burntisland once had many rowing boats, some used for taking tourists around the Bay and Black Rock. (This postcard was printed before the First World War.)

Now with the interest in Coastal Rowing in Scotland, there are several clubs on both sides of the Forth.

A small group has been formed which includes a winner of the Civic Week Raft Race and existing members of the Kinghorn Coastal club and Burntisland Sailing Club.

The group met for the second time in early December and discussed whether to buy or build a boat, where to keep and launch it, fundraising etc.

Anyone interested in helping to make this project happen should go along on Wednesday 30th January (2019!) at 7pm to the Roasting Project in the High Street.

If you can’t go but are interested, please email rowing@burntislandsailing.org.uk.
