Many, many thanks for all your kind wishes, your cards and gifts, and for giving me such a wonderful memory when you all sang “Happy Birthday” to me on that sunny afternoon. I especially loved seeing the children. Your kindness was much appreciated. It was truly a special moment that I will treasure. I have really enjoyed my 100th birthday celebrations, with lots of lovely gifts, cake and, of course, my special birthday wishes from Her Majesty the Queen.

Thank you all once again for your part in making my 100th birthday such a special celebration!

With best wishes, George Carmichael

Many congratulations to Dunshalt resident George Carmichael who celebrates his 100th birthday on 26 April 2021.

George has many memories of growing up in the village which was a very different place in his youth, with no electricity, water from the Well Green, unmetalled roads and thatched houses. He is a keen golfer and began his golf at Auchtermuchty Golf Club in the late 1920s, then at Ladybank after he returned from the war, where he served in the RAF in France and Burma. George attended Bell Baxter High School and also played rugby for the Howe of Fife. His working life was as a professional engineer in Edinburgh.

He returned to the village four years ago to be near his family. He enjoys his walks around the village recalling its many shops and other businesses, his school friends and neighbours and relating his fascinating memories from that time.

Anyone who has been along Dryside Road in the past year will know of the problems created by cars poorly parked along the verges, making access for large agricultural machinery almost impossible. Confirmation has been given at the Community Council  that a Rural Clearway will be established between Strathmiglo and the Fife boundary on the Dryside Road; that means no parking permitted outwith designated areas. Road signs should be sited shortly. The temporary notice is for 18 months, and may become permanent. This is one of a number of Clearways which are being established across Fife.

The way people access A&E services is changing to keep patients and NHS Scotland safe this winter – making sure everyone gets the right care in the right place.
