The new Murray Studios in Anstruther were officially opened by Provost Jim Leishman, alongwith Trust members and councillors last week.

The Murray Library Trustees were delighted to welcome the Provost to an official reception, where they were also joined by many representatives of the funding bodies who have made significant contributions to the overall refurbishment and rejuvenation of the iconic building.

The project would not have been possible without the generous support of Fife Council, ERDF, Historic Scotland, Fife Historic Building Trust, Fife Environment Trust and the Heritage Lottery Fund to which the Trustees are extremely grateful.

Following an introduction by Councillor Elizabeth Riches, chair of the Murray Library Trust, Provost Leishman said: “This is a fantastic modern space. The people of Anstruther have a light and attractive building that will serve them for years to come. I look forward to seeing it flourish!”

Such was the popularity of the Studios, which are home to seven units for the creative industries, that all had been reserved well before the project was completed.
