19 March 2020 It is with regret that, in accordance with government and U.K. advice i.e. avoid all unnecessary contact, we are cancelling our monthly and group meetings until further notice. This of course means that the AGM, due to take place in May, was conducted by email/mail. See the Welcome page for more information about the AGM.
Some groups are continuing with on-line meetings or suggestions of things to do - see GROUPS and EVENTS for more information.
From November 2020, we are also experimenting with holding our regular monthly meeting online - see event details.
[Our monthly meetings would normally be held on the second Thursday of each month (unless otherwise shown on the programme) at the St Brycedale Kirk Centre, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1ET. Meet at 1.45 pm for prompt 2.00 pm start. There is an admission charge of £2 for members .
Click St Brycedale Kirk Centre to see map. These meetings are accessible to wheelchair users.
Several groups used to meet at the nearby K.U.S.I. (Kirkcaldy United Services Institute) 8 St Brycedale Ave, Kirkcaldy KY1 1ET. ** Please note, some groups changed venue or time from April as K.U.S.I. is not available for original times. Please check!**]
