A DUNFERMLINE pub will be raising a pint to the city’s famous Peacocks tomorrow (Friday).

The Rumblingwell, on Baldridgeburn, are working alongside volunteers from the Glen sanctuary to host a fundraising evening for the birds.

Rebecca Perzylo, the manager of the pub, said: “After everything that happened the owner said straight away to get something organised.

“It has been a couple of months in the planning.”

The event comes in the wake of a horrific attack which shook the city and saw one of the birds, Louis, badly injured, and another, Malcolm, killed.

The pub was recently taken over by Jordan McDermott, who Rebecca says brings experience and “loads of enthusiasm” to the business.

He dreamed up the idea, which has seen workers develop a strong relationship with aviary volunteers, to “do his bit” for the city.

The night will involve bingo – normally a popular Thursday night event at the busy pub – as well as a quiz, raffle and live music.

There will be a donation pot on the door and children are more than welcome to get involved in the “family friendly” evening.

“Kids can take part, though if they win in the bingo their parents will need to take home the money!” Rebecca added.

“We are really hoping for a good turnout.”

Their relationship with the peacocks has also seen one bird – Charlie – visit the venue, while images of all the Pittencrieff Park residents and their names have been shared on the Rumblingwell Facebook page.

And Rebecca says the pub hasn’t slowed down in recent weeks, despite its third change of ownership in three years, with South African Martin Sutherland choosing to step away recently for personal reasons.

“We are introducing a quiz night on Friday nights which we hope will encourage people to come out,” she explained.

“Fridays are one of the quietest nights in Dunfermline, but we are busy with the bingo on Thursdays and on Saturdays.

“Jordan has so much experience, his family own pubs in Glasgow so he has been in and out of pubs his whole life.

“I always said I wanted someone to take over who had this much experience.”

The fundraiser will run from 7pm tomorrow night, no tickets are required and donations can be made at the door.
