Far Flung Fittie Folk

Good news! We have added an online option for our postcard project!

Part of year-long, Fittie-based community arts project Safe Harbour Open Sea, this initiative is aimed at anyone who has moved away from Fittie – we’d love to hear about your new home and new life!

Simply answer a few short questions to connect with the current community and add your story to our exhibition.

Vattenfall funding awarded

Good news for the Community – Vattenfall who are construction firm behind the wind farm we see from our windows has made an award to the Trust. They support projects that are environmentally sustainable, and funds will go towards meeting the substantial costs of thermal insulation and double-glazed windows for the community hall. Although we still have some more fund raising to do to meet all our renovation requirements, this is a game changer.

Coupled with the ground source heat pump, they helped to purchase earlier, these improvements will maximise running efficiency, and reduce energy demand, as well has upgrading our space for social events and recreational activities, benefiting residents and visitors.

Culture Collective’s partnership with the Fittie Community Development Trust was instrumental in our success in obtaining this award since, among other aims, this project seeks to engage creatively, with those in Fittie who are interested in reducing our carbon footprint.

As always, any donations to our very popular prize Tombola or to the jams/bakes stall are most welcome

The heritage and history of Fittie is being celebrated in an arts project that also looks to imagine the unique community’s future

Residents are being asked to join in with the Safe Harbour, Open Sea initiative and say what they would like to see it do and achieve as it looks at ways of bringing people together again as part of post-Covid recovery.

The year-long project – with arts organisation Open Road working in partnership with the Fittie Community Development Trust – now has a team of artists and creative producers working in this special fishing-village-in-the-city.

Pauline Brown, chair of the trust, said: “I think it represents a remarkable opportunity for those in Fittie who want to participate in something that honours the past of Fittie but looks towards the future and how they might be part of Fittie’s future… “
