The revival of a long-lapsed old event allowed a new community group to make a fruitful start to its hopes of presenting Pittenweem with a brighter future.
The launch of Pittenweem Community Trust (PiCT) was marked by the staging of the Strawberry Fair – an attraction not seen in the burgh for many years.
PiCT is a grassroots movement, developed by residents who got together earlier this year, initially over concerns about the future of the town’s then three pubs.
Now with formal status, it has widened its aims to economic and development topics, such as restoring the outdoor pool and protecting the last remaining pub, and wants to hear what other issues local people would like addressed.
Members of the trust hoped to speak to visitors about activities proposed over the months ahead and also wanted to hear the opinions of others.
The fair, at Pittenweem Fish Market on Saturday, included strawberries from Easter Grangemuir, community group tables, an ‘Old Pittenweem’ photo display, First Responders’ defibrillator demonstrations, children’s crafts, fancy dress parade, treasure hunt and live music.
