Funding has been secured to allow an East Neuk community organisation to transform an area of Pittenweem.

Support and financial backing of around £4000 has come from Fife Council and the Countryside Trust, enabling Pittenweem Community Trust (PiCT) to focus on West Braes.

The scheme will involve repairing crazy golf and puittiong up a hut to rent out the clubs and provide refreshments.

PiCT director Susan Wilkinson said: “Many residents remember the fun we had at the West Braes from our childhoods. We look forward to renovating the Braes area back to its former glory.”

The hut and crazy golf will be the first phase of this ongoing project for PiCT and will provide at least one full-time job over the summer, added Susan.

“We are also appealing for volunteers to help with the renovations and staffing the hut,” she explained. “PiCT has committed to adding considerably to the budget from our existing funds too.”
