Our Warm Welcome

Largo Area’s Warm Welcome is a new project co-ordinated by Largo Communities Together and supported by Fife Council, The Rotary Club of Leven, The LACRT, The Largo Area Community Council and Fife Voluntary Action. We are also very lucky to have had some sponsorship from Ewan Fraser including ECF Electrical – Thank you !

Largo Library and Community Hub (7 Lundin Square Lundin Links, Fife, KY8 6BH) will provide everyone with a warm and welcoming space through the coldest months this winter.

The library is continuing with their Warm Wednesdays on the 21st of December.

They had some great feedback on the last two Warm Wednesdays and word is spreading.

The library is open from 10.00am with tea, coffee and newspapers available. Soup and rolls will be available from 11.00-1.00pm.

Please spread the word to people who you think will benefit from this warm space.

Everyone is welcome!

On Tuesday afternoons (2:00 – 5.00pm), Thursdays (10:00 – 1.00pm and 2.00-5.00pm) and Saturday mornings (10.00-1.00pm) the library will offer tea, coffee, biscuits and newspapers and a warm space and a warm welcome.

(If transport or anything else is a barrier please get in touch – just reply to this email and we will follow up.)

Over the next few weeks

As we are getting organised with our Warm Welcome venues there will be gaps in what we can provide as we rely on volunteers.

So, to cover this gap as best we can in some of the coldest weeks of the year, we are offering a Warm Welcome Special which is a hot soup, roll and drink for a subsided offer of £3 at either The Lundie Coffee Company, 19 Leven Road, Lundin Links or at The Aurrie Cafe, Lower Largo.

There will be vouchers at both the venues and at the Largo Library from next week. Just ask for a Warm Welcome Special.

Get in touch if you want one emailed out or if there is someone you know who may benefit.

(If you have a business and would like to offer something for our Warm Welcome programme please get in touch or if you are looking for any support including information or transport —- just hit reply)

Christmas Day Offer

The Aurrie in Lower Largo have had support from LACRT and The Hatti Group to have a free community Christmas Day, it’s a great way to share resources not to speak of plenty of songs and jokes.

They have a delicious menu prepared so if you are unsure of what you are doing this Christmas consider booking a place where there is sure to be plenty of care, warmth and cheer.

Book Your Christmas Day at The Aurrie

Finally, a very big thank you

To all of you – We had such a fantastic response to our Community Groups Open day, and our first proper Friends of Largo Bay Meeting and it gives us a great picture of the gaps and opportunities we face. It has given us so much to work with as we look forward to 2023 and we also look forward to the next stage of the Local Place Plan and Community Action Plan with a much clearer picture of priorities.

To all the people who showed up at our events; responded to our questions online or got in touch in any way; the volunteers; ocean enthusiasts & litter pickers; all the local schoolchildren; those who come from afar; the parents; businesspeople and community groups (to mention but a few) who have got involved in our activities over the past twelve months – thank you so much !

As always just hit reply if you have anything to say, questions or feedback…
