SOUTH DUNFERMLINE COMMUNITY COUNCIL
What started off as Pitcorthie Residents Association about 44 years ago, became Pitcorthie Community Council in 1982 and over the years, has supported the local community within its boundaries in getting amenities to the estate so that it is no longer just a collection of houses. The gala, the newsletter, the playpark, the community centre and the events are all down to the hard work of the volunteer members who keep these going. Local councillors have always provided guidance and support with the many projects in the past and continue to do so. In 2010, Pitcorthie Community Council officially changed its name to South Dunfermline Community Council to include the new residents in the Eastern Expansion who were within the community council boundary.
Covering the areas of Pitcorthie, Pitreavie, Middlebank Rise,
Masterton Lea and Masterton Park, we are the bridge between the residents and our local authority Fife Council. It is our goal to improve the local area and bring people
together to keep the community connected through projects and a wide range of activities throughout the year.
We aim to provide the residents of South Dunfermline information on items that we are covering at our Community Council meetings and give updates on current news in the neighbourhoods.
We are cancelling our monthly meetings for April, May and June. We hope to resume meetings in September depending on the current situation. We will communicate via emails if there's anything urgent or any action needs to be taken.
Our Over 60's Evening has been cancelled and the Quiz Night has been postponed until further notice. We will keep you informed once things go back to normal and it is safe to hold events again.
The Young at Heart Group which meets every 2nd Monday at John Marshall Community Centre is also closing its sessions for the next few months until at least September.
It is also with heavy hearts and great sadness that, due to the ongoing effect of Covid-19, we have reached the decision to cancel this year's Gala.
We have been watching the situation closely as it develops and, while we had quietly hoped the ban on mass gatherings may ease off by August, it is clear to us now that the ongoing requirements for physical distancing may remain in place until the end of the year. Hopefully we can safely return in 2021.
Please take care, stay safe and take the necessary precautions.
