The Week at Holyrood with Dunfermline MSP Cara Hilton: Too many families in Dunfermline and West Fife are struggling day-to-day

18 Jun 2015 08:30

MY CONSTITUENCY office has moved this week from Dunfermline Business Centre into Dunfermline High Street. My new office is on Douglas Street, part of the 82 High Street community hub. I hope the more central location and close proximity to public transport links will make my new office more convenient for constituents from right across my constituency, from Kincardine in the west to Duloch in the east. It will be a couple of weeks before everything is fully up and running, as we’re waiting on some refurbishment works being completed and broadband being installed – but hopefully this should all be in place by the end of June.

Ross 'Teddy' Craig: Scottish football nostalgia - it's not what it used to be

22 May 2015 08:30

Somehow, I still look back on Scottish football as having felt a bit glossier in those days. What’s changed though?

Two Scots Abroad: 'Twilight' in Texas and penguins in Peru!

14 May 2015 14:30

‘HI – we’re Gemma and Craig (Two Scots Abroad) and we’re about to down tools as teacher and tradesman to travel the Americas (and Europe) for 18 months. We’ve spent the last year saving for this trip of a lifetime and look forward to sharing it with you. I’m from Burntisland and teach Modern Studies at a West Fife high school and have been lucky to get the opportunity to take a career break to travel. Craig is from Rosyth and is a self-employed gas engineer; luckily his boss agreed or I’d be flying solo!’ Here’s their second instalment, full of sipping odd fluorescent drinks in jazz-fuelled New Orleans, partying to Scots band Twilight Sad in the South by Southwest music fest in Texas and falling in love with Peru.
