a GOOD crowd gathered at Kirkcaldy Old Kirk at the weekend for the unveiling of new signs informing people of the church and graveyard’s important historic past.

Rosemary Potter, chairman of Kirkcaldy Old Kirk Trust, welcomed visitors to the ceremony in the church graveyard and asked the Trust’s honorary president, Dr Robert Sharp, to say a few words before proceeding outside to perform the unveiling of the interpretative signs.

Dr. Sharp reminded everyone that, according to his records, this would be stone number 303 in the kirkyard - and no-one was buried under that spot!

The invaluable contribution of Ann Watters and Kirkcaldy Civic Society to the recording of the Old Kirk’s history was acknowledged.

There was an opportunity to meet the artist, Catriona MacEachen, the stonemason, George Sweeney, Council officials and the sign-maker, Stef Hayward from the Sign Company.

“These signs will play an important role in directing visitors to the church and graveyard and telling them a bit about its historic past,” said Mrs Potter.
