Situated in the stunning and atmospheric town of St. Andrews, Balnacarron Care Home is a grand, former private house that has been converted into a home providing exceptional levels of care.
A new reader from Norway, Michael STENHOUSE has sent me postcards of Beveridge Park bandstand in Kirkcaldy.
In response to me posting a card showing a man and his family, Michael told me it was his Great Grandfather Adam STENHOUSE who was the first Superintendent of the Park.

Due to recent theft of East Wemyss war memorial bronze, this song was thought to be apt for The Fife Post to publish.
This song was inspired by reports of increasing numbers of thefts of bronze plaques from War Memorials all over the UK. Like any decent person, Harvey was outraged but, unlike most, he was able to give voice to some of the names on the missing plaques in this powerfully moving song.
Recorded at Rothes Recordings, Glenrothes and Redbarn Studios, Longforgan, June 2013.
Can any reader help with this photograph, I have given her some information I believe to be correct, but stand ready to be corrected by my many readers.

I especially like the UF Manse, Freuchie – if you enlarge you will see a woman in a hat and scarf , with two children looking out of the window.
I have made it larger so you can see it as Lindsay says above.

Low Tide at Largo a particular favourite and of course Wemyss Memorial Hospital which I have been visiting recently and nothing looks to have changed from this postcard except today some weeds are growing on the gutters.
