IT may be more than twelve months away, but a popular Dunfermline event can be added to your 2022 diary.

The date has been set for next year's Fresh Air Festival as current coronavirus restrictions pushes the day of family fun further away.

Organisers had been planned on hosting the event in the town's public park this summer, but it will now be held on June 2, 2022.

Jim Stewart, organiser and chair of Dunfermline Central Community Council, said: "We had hoped to do something this year, but with restrictions still in place it would be impossible within our small budget and funding.

"Better that we focus on looking to have an improved event next year. We would like to perhaps have something in the park later this year if we can - primarily for the kids and families, but as ever the weather does have some consideration.

"We have recently drafted a new consultation for the public park that looks for feedback into an updated plan. Other plans afoot include updating the skatepark, allotments, including an orchard for the unused areas."

Fresh Air Festival is a free event for the whole family and will run from 12-4pm.

The hugely popular grass sledges – a close second to the real thing - will make a return and a host of other favourites.

Free stories are available whilst you wait your turn on the horses and ponies; Fife Historic Vehicles will show off their amazing collection of vintage cars, motor bikes, with buses and fire-engines nearby to explore.

Football, tennis, rugby, basketball, cycling and American Football are just some of the sporting activities on offer.

At a more chilled pace you can enjoy birds of prey, magic, tai chi, yoga, chainsaw sculpting, and face painting.

The public park's bandstand will include traditional wind and pipe bands as well the best of the town’s indie music scene.

Skateboard Scotland also run a competition in the skate-park for skaters, scooters and boarders, with everyone welcome to turn up and join in.
