Levenmouth will be in the spotlight this weekend as 10 delegates from Bruges in France arrive to check the area out as a potential twin.

The town council staff, which includes the mayor, Brigitte Terraza, as well as the head of international relations and Bruges’ twinning president, will stay in Levenmouth for three days, taking in a number of the local sights during their visit.

We want to try to complement the potential that is here while showing them what we already have.

And the Twinning Steering group, set up to organise the visit and coordinate future discussions and events between the two towns, is hoping Levenmouth can make a big impact on the Bruges delegates when they arrive on Saturday.

Blair Denwette from the group said: “There will be a mix of culture, sports, arts, music and more on offer when they’re here.

“We have a lot going on but we want to try to make as much time as possible to actually sit down and speak with them.

“We want to try to complement the potential that is here while showing them what we already have.”

After arriving late on Saturday, on Sunday morning the delegates will be given the chance to have a go at golf, go to the British Cycling National Junior Road Race Series in Kennoway, perhaps a fishing trip or a walk along the coast.

They will have lunch at the Old Manor in Lundin Links before having the choice of visiting the Wemyss School of Needlework, the Kennoway Carnival, or a trip to the Caves Society in East Wemyss.

In the evening, a ceilidh has been arranged at the Buckhaven Beehive, with local crafters and a piper, and traditional foods prepared by the West Wemyss Community Cafe.

On Monday, the group will visit Silverburn Park to hear about plans for the park, as well as Blacketyside, the West Wemyss Community Cafe and Heritage Centre, a tour of the Wemyss Gardens, and the new Levenmouth High School, and a buffet reception at Fife House with Fife Provost Jim Leishman.

Before leaving on Tuesday, the visitors will be offered a guided tour of Kingsbarns Distillery and lunch at Wellsgreen Golf Club.
