Ceilidh to mark first anniversary of halls restoration

Dreel Halls
Dreel Halls

A family ceilidh is to be held to celebrate the first anniversary of Anstruther’s Dreel Halls being re-opened after extensive refurbishments.

The Anstruther Improvements Association (AIA), the community organisation that now owns and runs the halls, has linked up with the Anstruther & District Allotment Association to run the event on Friday from 7.00 p.m.

As well as toe-tapping, arm-linking, feet-spinning reels from the David Jack ceilidh band, the Anstruther & District Allotment Association will also be on hand to with fuel in the form of seasonal soup.

After successfully gaining funding from a number of organisations including the Heritage Lottery Fund, Fife Environment Trust, Historic Scotland, and others, to make the buildings

safe in 2013, the AIA continues its work to secure further funding to make Dreel Halls a permanent community asset for Anstruther.

Tickets are available from the Community Kist shop in Anstruther and via the website at www.anstrutherimprovements.org.
