Crail Food Festival Donation to Crail Community Partnership
Over the last 9 years there have been highly successful festivals, and as a result of careful budgeting and organisation, surpluses have built up. These have been largely retained in order to ensure a sound base for future festivals. Following the 2018 Festival, several local donations were made and it was also agreed that a sum of £5,000 would be donated to Crail Community Partnership to support a suitable project. Crail Community Partnership are now actively involved in seeking to acquire Crail Community Hall from Fife Council via asset transfer. In order to process this, a building survey is required plus design plans and specifications for future renovation and refurbishment. It has been agreed that the £5,000 donation will be used to fund the survey and design work.
David Mann, an original longstanding committee member of Crail Food Festival handed over the cheque to Crail Community Partnership at the further Charrette drop in session held in the Community hall on 12 October. He said ‘Crail Community Hall has been a central venue for Crail Food festival, since inception, and it is particularly appropriate that the Food festival are able help to fund the plans to secure the long term future of this important Crail building.’
Crail Community Partnership are very thankful for this donation.
