THIS is the dynamic team that will make Civic Week happen again in June.
BUT it will need participants and helpers.
Like many things in Burntisland, Civic Week just seems to happen. But the reality is a lot of work (mostly behind the scenes), organisational skills, planning, donations, sponsors, luck (see last year’s Parade Day weather) and help on the day(s).
Today’s AGM at the Sands saw the re-election of the 2018 office bearers plus the addition of a minutes secretary.
The theme – Space and Science – was revealed on B.B last year.
It had been hoped that former Burntisland Primary pupil Anneila Sargent, who went on to become an astronomer in California, would be in town during Civic Week, but schedules didn’t align. She may still have a presence…
Another famous Burntisland scientist will again be celebrated at the Heritage Centre this year. Mary Somerville is part of the 2019 exhibition Island Jewels of the Forth.
The Week (actually 10 days) starts on Friday June 14th with the shop window display judging. Saturday’s big event is the Parade. Last year there were 10 groups taking part, this year it could be more.
