BUPA-Balnacarron Care Home

We have had a care home asking to be added to my links page, I am happy to do this for them.

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.

Thefts of bronze plaques from War Memorials

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.

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.
