The Merchants’ Quarter
‘Healing Paths of Fife’ in aid of Kirkcaldy Foodbank
Kirkcaldy at its best
My last post described the difficulties families are facing making ends meet in areas of Kirkcaldy but the Lang Toon is a place of two halves. There are areas of beautiful well kept stone family houses and terraces near the centre of Kirkcaldy and many points of rich cultural heritage including The Museum, library and art galleries, The Adam Smith Theatre and The Old Kirk which boasts of accomplished musical events to name but a few.
There are places being restored bringing back new life to the town centre including The Kings Theatre, The Olympic Arcade and the Merchant’s Quarter. See a previous post on my virtual tour of the Fife Coastal Path ~ Kirkcaldy.
Seafield Tower and the Seals
There are lovely walks along the promenade, out to Seafield to watch the seals or a gentle stroll to The Harbourmaster’s House in Dysart not to mention the numerous well tended parks.
Maybe a bit controversial, but there is much new building around the outskirts of Kirkcaldy, changing the demographics of the area, all of which should bring more prosperity to the town and attract businesses to establish here. A linoleum factory has even been been restored and reopened, for example, due to the ‘green nature’ of its product, bringing much needed employment to this no so wee toon.
Projects who support local folks in need in Kirkcaldy
The Kirkcaldy Foodbank, sees itself as a last resource to ensure no person is left hungry in Kirkcaldy and the surrounding areas, but there are other places which give well needed support. Here are two of them.
