This week the first dates for public consultation events across Fife to consult communities on the proposed Fife Pilgrim Way have been announced.
The Fife Pilgrim Way is an exciting new project to develop a 70 mile long distance walking route through the heart of Fife to link together many examples of the Kingdom’s medieval and pilgrim heritage.
Over the forthcoming months the Trust, with support from the Scottish Pilgrim Routes Forum, the Fife Tourism Partnership, Fife Council, Fife Cultural Trust and Forth Pilgrim will be organising a series of drop in events along the route where you can come and talk to the team about the proposals and find out more.
Simon Hill of Fife Coast and Countryside Trust who is leading the consultations said “to develop a successful route requires the support of local people as well as landowners. Through these drop-in events we want to encourage the active involvement of communities, heritage groups, churches and businesses to shape the project and contribute to the long term success of the route.
We warmly welcome the input of local people and these events are an opportunity for residents to share their ideas for the project. For example, can you tell us more about Fife’s medieval past? Do you have a view on how we could involve your community, church or business? What activities you would like to see the project offer?”
The drop-in events begin on Saturday 14th March at the North Queensferry Station café. Future events will be held in Culross, Inverkeithing, Kelty, Ballingry, Glenrothes, Kennoway and Ceres and further dates are being planned for St Andrews and Dunfermline.
The project is keen to capture the wider views and opinions of people throughout Fife and is offering various ways to have your say.
