Transport in Fife throughout the ages will be celebrated in a major exhibition at the Lomond Centre this summer.

The Workers’ Educational Association, Fife is organising the event, which will run on August 16, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Forth Road Bridge.

The wider purpose of the exhibition is to raise awareness about the various modes and methods of transport in the Kingdom since the earliest days to the completion of the Forth Road Bridge 50 years ago.

A spokesman for the WEA, told the Gazette: “The exhibition aims to increase knowledge and awareness of the heritage and culture of Fife.

“As with previous events, we intend to enable community groups with similar culture and heritage interest to network.”

Organisers will look to involve primary school pupils in a creative competition on the future of transport in Fife both looking forward to what the future may hold as well as looking back into the furthest reaches of history in Fife.

The spokesman added: “We expect at least 100 people to benefit directly by the presentations in the event and a wide range of primary schools to participate.

The exhibition will include various vintage vehicles in the grounds of the community centre in Woodside Way, Glenrothes

For this reason the WEA would like to invite owners of vintage and veteran vehicles, particularly bicycles, who would like to bring along their vehicles on August 16 to get in touch.

They are asked to contact the WEA office on (01383) 510774 before the end of June to make arrangements. Admission is free.
