On Wednesday 21st February 2007, a deputation from the committee of KCS travelled to the Scottish Parliament to lodge a petition of nearly 3,500 names in an attempt to prevent the sale of a section of Ravenscraig Park by Fife Council.


Our photo shows the group at Kirkcaldy Railway Station at the start of their journey. Left to right: Mr. Don Swanson, Mrs Mary Hall, Mr. David Galloway, Mrs. Hazel Weierter and, in the foreground, Mrs. Ann Wattters MBE

The land was going to be used for residential housing which was not the purpose intended for the park which was gifted to the town by the Nairn family in 1929. KCS decided to take action.


The ground has become the Ravenscraig Walled Community Garden.


The photo was taken on the 9th September 2012, Doors Open Day.
