Late last week I popped into Asda in Dalgety Bay. What did I see? A a very helpful lady selling raffle tickets for Dalgety Bay PTA. The prize has been kindly donated by Louie Brown’s bar. That is Dalgety Bay’s very own leading restaurant and leisure venue. So I took a quick photo see above. Sadly the lady was camera shy. No idea why!
The draw will take place at their Christmas Fair 4 30 pm 5th December. Therefore if you would like a ticket please contact Susan Birrell, Dalgety Bay Primary School, St Bridget’s Brae, Dalgety Bay, Fife KY11 9LT

This is a brief note to explain why we are making people aware of the Community Council Elections in 2014.
Fife Council are encouraging Fifers to stand and participate in their local community councils. To that end we support the widening of the democratic process. We would also encourage people to stand for elections such as Fife Council, Scottish Parliament and the UK Parliament. The more variety we have the better. it gives the electorate more choice.
Historically most but not all Community Councils just have enough people come forward to fill the majority of vacancies, and therefore there is no need for an election.
But what happens say… if there are more candidates than vacancies? The solution is simple there is then an election and the people in the community decide.
This page says…
“Community councils are elected every 4 years.
The next Community Council elections will take place on Thursday, 13 November 2014.
See below for more information on how to stand as a candidate along with the election timetable and nomination pack.
Please note that nomination papers should be returned to the council by no later than 4pm on Thursday, 16 October. “
As an aside it is important to fully complete the nomination papers, otherwise the candidate cannot stand.
Therefore if you would like to stand as a Community Councilor for your Community Council you can find your nomination papers here:-

THE FIFE COUNCIL (B981 HOPE STREET, INVERKEITHING)
(TEMPORARY PROHIBITION OF USE) ORDER 2014
Fife Council has made an Order under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 prohibiting the use by vehicular traffic of B891 Hope Street from Ferryhills Rd to Ferrytoll Park and Ride.
The Order is to allow road realignment and reconstruction works to be carried out in safety and will be operational from 20.00 on 10/10/14 until 06.00 on 13/10/14; between 20.00 and 06.00 each night from 13/10/14 until 18/10/14; and from 06.00 on 18/10/14 until 06.00 on 20/10/14 or until earlier completion of the works.

Leaders of three voluntary organisations have written jointly to the Chief Executive of Fife Council. They raised concerns about the decision by Fife Council to no longer fund their organisations and asked for a meeting to discuss those issues. In a reply to those leaders , the Chairs of Disabilities Fife, Fife Elderly Forum and Frae, Fife Council’s Chief Executive states he is unwilling to meet with them to discuss their urgent concerns. See final paragraphs of… Letter of 3 September 2014 from Steve Grimmond, Fife Council rejecting a request to meet disabled and elderly leaders.
In our view, Fife Council should be talking with these voluntary organisations at the highest level as the loss of funding has had a significant impact on what they can do. We also are of the view that Fife Councillors have been misled about the impact of their decision on the local community. We believe the impact assessment should have been high and not low.
As a result all those orgranisations are struggling to find alternatives. Disabilities Fife is the first that will be hit and is now looking at crowd funding.
Please do support them if you can. It is our view that Fife Council are treating these organisations unfairly and not providing enough support during the provision of a new Equalities Hub in Fife. It is also our view that Fife Council are forcing those that are less fortunate, the blind, deaf and other disabled people and the elderly to provide the funding by the removal of their year on year funding.
Fife Council should be finding this money from other sources not the voluntary sector that have been left high and dry, which have little resource to do this work. Leaving these organisations without sufficient monies to continue. Come on Fife Council, be fair to those that are less fortunate than yourself. You are a multi million pound organisation with over 20,000 employees. Surely you can provide more support?
No southbound traffic from 6th September until 14th September.
See portion of Fife Council notice below:-
ii)prohibiting vehicles travelling in a southbound direction on Ferryhills Rd (at Jamestown) and The Brae, North Queensferry (at Whinneyknowe) except for vehicles being driven upon the direction or with the permission of a police constable in uniform.
Bruce Davies singing at Dalgety Parish Church Friday 28th February. The evening was opened by Maureen Campbell from the Forth Churches Guild.
Bruce’s repertoire included songs written by Tom Paxton such as ‘Home to me is the Hills of Scotland’. He performed many pieces such as ‘I want a Hug’, and ‘Hush Hush Hush time to be sleeping’. Bruce’s performance was a brilliant combination of guitar and vocals that captured the hearts of the audience. You can find out more about Bruce Davies here.
